While we do want people to take the initiative, in this case people are
actually on top of things.  Here's what Limi wrote to the plone-users

As most of you have probably discovered, Plone 2.1 has had a soft
today - meaning that the final code is tagged, and the tarball is  
available at http://plone.org/download (and yes, the change log for 2.1
2200 lines lines long - makes for perfect bedtime reading ;)

The full release will happen in a few days when the Windows and Mac OS
installers are available, and the marketing material, press release
upgrade/migration docs are ready. We would also like to make sure you
not submit the news of the release to news sites before we are ready
the full installers and documentation, so we can maximize the impact
let newcomers have a good impression of Plone. You can keep a secret
the community, right? ;)

I'd like to use this pre-announcement to encourage those of you who
how to install from the tarball to give the new release a go, and to  
extend a big THANK YOU to all of the people from the Plone Team that
this release happen. It's the culmination of over a year of hard work,
it's the most awesome Plone release yet. You all rock, and I hope to
as many of you as possible at the Plone Conference 2005 in Vienna!

Plone 2.1 is ready to take on the world!

PS: As-it-is-progressing documentation on what's new in Plone 2.1 can
found here: http://plone.org/documentation/whatsnew/2.1 (still not
but has some details)
