The message dashed my hopes because I was hoping that the release might 
be rather imminent, but upon reading that page, it put the release off 
to some time well into 2005, which will mean that Blue Sky will have 
been working on Textures for Mac OS X for more than 4 years (10.0 came 
out in March 2001).

I announced the archive page to the Emacs list on December 4. :-)
