I thought programmers SE should be out of beta long time ago, how come it's still not yet?

We are next in line.

Jin is working on the design, but has decided on to do a redesign based on the feedback from the first & second attempts. Once that's been agreed we'll probably go live.

There's also a question on Meta Stack Overflow about identifying questions to migrate from SO that indicates the go live date is imminent.

http://programmers.stackexchange.com is probably going live this week,

  • What will be the domain? – user2567 Dec 10 '10 at 19:45
  • @Pierre - programmers.stackexchange.com. There's been no talk of a domain and apart from Ubuntu, Seasoned Advice (cooking) and Cross Validated (stats) non of the other sites have their own domain. – ChrisF Dec 10 '10 at 19:51
  • Though nothingtoinstall.com does point to Web Apps even though it's not used in the title. – ChrisF Dec 10 '10 at 19:52
  • Money has the same setup with basicallymoney.com. – C. Ross Dec 13 '10 at 13:20
  • @C. Ross - forgot about that one, though it is an SE 1.0 site that converted to SE 2.0. As in OnStartups now that you remind me. – ChrisF Dec 13 '10 at 13:23

Programmers.SE has been in beta for 99 days: all Stack Exchange sites, barring some exceptional circumstances like a business-development deal (e.g. Ask Ubuntu), stay in beta for at least 90 days. Many sites stay in beta for significantly longer than that.

We're currently next or second in line to leave beta: right now, Jin is working on the final design. Once that's done, we'll leave beta shortly thereafter.
