I think it's safe to say that ccHost 5 is officially 'behind schedule'
 by at least a few weeks. The biggest single hold up is IE6 compat on
 the 'Commons' skin - the one used by ccMixter. About 20% of the hits
 coming in to ccM are IE6 so it seems impossible to avoid that browser
 and it's stunning amount of bugs and quirks. IE7, FF2 and Safari are
 quite harmonious, but IE6 has forced literally dozens of mods, many
 with conditionals directly in the html templates.

 The good news is that vast majority of bugs are in the skins while the
 new template engine and dataviews (more later) and revised query
 engine seems pretty solid.

 Again, I'd like to emphasize that existing 4.x sites should plan on a
 few days (a week?) of migrating skins to the new template engine and
 that developers with plugins should expect about a day or two of
 coding to upgrade. Anybody with mods to core files (cclib, ccextras,
 etc.) can expect those changes to be completely useless.

 My hope/plan is that later next week I can
 - take another run at a full ccMixter upgrade on the beta site and if
 that works:
 - cut the 5 code over to the main branch of SVN then:
 - go 'live' with the code on ccMixter and if that doesn't give me a
 heart attack:
 - start 3x daily drops of the 5 code and open it up to general beta
