I will try to give n update on the current plan.

The sidebar branch is not yet integrated but I expect that it will be
finished next week latest. That means we will have a delay of some days
here. As soon as I have concrete dates I will update the plan in the wiki.

Some further things are ongoing and we should try to finish this work
soon (2 weeks) to have the stuff in place and can start or concentrate
on bug fixing and stabilization.
