A beta WOULD be helpful.
The beta is certainly still planned -- recall that the original post of this thread said:

Note that it said "next several weeks". I'm sure that vague wording was intentional, since there could not possibly have been certainty back on June 20 as to just how long all this would take. Patience, patience.

This is just speculation on my part, but I'm betting that the Classic sites will continue well into 2012. Note that the Calendar 2.0 was first supposed to be in March, then June, and still isn't out in August. Note that we haven't even seen a hint of a release of the rest of the Classic site functionality. I know the current documentation says that the Classic sites will be retired at the end of 2011, but I don't see how the new site (Calendar 2.0, News and Information, home pages, missionary info, etc.) can be released and solid by then.
Questions that can benefit the larger community should be asked in a public forum, not a private message.
