Any idea how long it will take?  We are developing a new project for a 
client that requires the news module.  We would prefer installing a 
proper version 5.0 news module over having to port the old one across, 
since the job of porting was not part of our plan.

Since it looks like a few of us are waiting for a new news module, 
please inform the list as well.

I notice that news like pages are on your new web site, assuming you use 
openCMS 5.0 for your own stuff B-), how do you handle news yourselves?
