It’s frustrating when the company of your favorite tool is silent on release status.

Perhaps what you mean by this comment is that you do not like the answer we give?
We’ve been giving that answer for many years now. As I say there in that post, some don’t like it, but “crickets”?

Now I think it is working well enough for me to use, but still has features to add. I'd usually expect to see those features in a beta before release. I'm happy enough with my original guess, and would be very pleased if it were out this quarter.
But I would emphasise that I know nothing about it at all. Just an entirely uninformed guess as a software user.
FWIW I'd like the option to buy it now. Expiry is a very minor inconvenience, but I'd still prefer it not to be there.
At the end of the day, you can either have a fixed date, and uncertain quality level or a fixed quality level and an uncertain date. I'm with the L&L policy on which is the best way to do things.

1) Users are forced to move to newer versions of code, so they're not reporting bugs in older versions. (They're also given the opportunity to see that their particular bug was actually fixed when the devs think it was.)
2) Support time doesn't have to be wasted on licensed/unlicensed issues.
