Image removed. Read the rules. Citing heavy customer feedback, Microsoft officials as high up as Bill Gates himself revealed today that the next public beta of IE8 won't be going home with Tech·Ed attendees this year.

Though the beta roadmap for Microsoft's next release of Internet Explorer has never been quite clear, one of the key "takeaways" from Bill Gates' keynote address at Tech·Ed 2008 in Orlando this morning -- other than this week's pending release of Silverlight 2.0 Beta 2 -- is the fact that testers and developers won't get a chance to see the next public beta of IE8 until late this summer, at the earliest.

The official verification of this news came on the IE developers' blog this morning, using the euphemistic language Microsoft has historically reserved for delaying a product or beta launch...or conveying any other sort of bad news.

as a Webdeveloper I'm really looking forward to this. I hope I can leave out my IE hacks very soon.

I was hoping it would be earlier. IE8 Beta 1 has a few things in it that I like, but it's very buggy (which is what I would expect). Hopefully Beta 2 will be much improved.

Are you sure? I'm using IE8 Beta 1. Although it has some new features, its quite buggy. Like the Favourites bug...

I hope MS fix those bugs as fast as possible...
