I understand the thought about the 'leaked' whatsnews we've deal with in the past, but that's not the point I'm making. I am quite sure (and they can attest to the fact in reply if needed) that when LN, JohnIV or whomever else has announced a release for MAME in the past, it was never done so without seeing the actual website updates take hold first. It's just my opinion you jumped the gun, is all, which added to the pressure and confusion of getting the release in a timely manner.
