The Register says that the reported is largely a result of lack of volunteers on the open-source project as well as due to some internal release schedules, but may not be as long as initially projected: "We may be able to wrangle a 1.5 release with our required changes or something. Others, like Ximian, want to add stuff to. So the long and short of it may be that there isn't an 'official' Aquafied OpenOffice.org release until 2005 and OOo 2.0, but there could be an interim release. In any case, our Aqua work will still be going on with NeoOffice, and when it works there would bemoved into OpenOffice.org CVS."
