5.5 Release Date

I’m a little confused, I got an email right before Couchbase Connect (maybe May 10th?) that looked very much like general available release email. But 5.5 still shows as beta on your download site. When it planned for release?

It’s still in beta as of writing. I don’t believe there’s been a public date for release yet.

Just so you don’t think I’m crazy… Doesn’t the following email sound a lot like a new-release email? I mean, it even says “Meet our revolutionary new releases
