Hi Peppermint Nation .. Team Peppermint would like to announce a preliminary launch date of the 30th of June for Peppermint 7.

Please be aware that this is currently only a 'pencilled in' date, if any new bugs come to light, etc. the release may be pushed back until they are fixed. That said, the private beta test hasn't brought up any show stoppers so far, so fingers crossed.

Also please be aware the main Peppermint website:
may be placed into 'maintenance mode' for a short period just prior to this date whilst we make the necessary adjustments for the release.

Thanks for your support so far, and here's hoping you like what you're about to see :)
