We’re very close on the merge release but still dealing with some last minute issues.
FWIW, the merge may sound easy, but it is an incredible amount of work – 100s’ of Monero unit tests have to pass and then GRAFT’s on top. Every change potentially has consequences in other places that have to be found and reconciled.
We’re getting there though. At this point we’re looking into next week for public Testnet.
