Dan says they have rough goals. He's not saying when. Also it will be released on beta when it happens.
I can tell you it will be this year ;)

You know when you get that feeling when you miss a pre-order. You know, how you want to face-palm...

I remember posting in this thread but for some reason my post isn't here.

Anyway, all I said is that it's about time for Alpha 5. As you've read from my previous posts I'm pretty excited.

Guys, the more we test, the faster these updates will come out (i think) so they can fix small problems

No, on the contrary. The more we test, the more issues they will have to fix and the more busy they'll be. I started testing only now in Alpha 4 and reported a lot of stuff. Perhaps that's why it's taking too long? Idk. Well, anyway I think it's about time for the new version.

Well if there's no small bugs to fix, then they'll work on new stuff, which takes a very long time

I can't wait for Alpha V. It'll give me a proper opportunity to play US, and a proper duty by finding bugs and making suggestions. I'm looking forward to it (for I've heard there may be a new batch).

In the fifth build, can you add a number option in the collision tab?

A little patience and you'll get to read all the update details in the Whats New document
once the patch is out.

The update is scheduled for tonight, but we're still wrapping things up.
Please don't take my words as a guarantee -
there's always a chance of things going wrong in the last second.
So if we don't make it tonight it'll still come any day now.

That said, we're looking to give you a nice beefy update as soon as possible.

What do you mean by a number option? For what?
