We have lots of little details to wrap up (roughly 80 Github issues worth), need to perform several rounds of QA and testing, and then run a private invite-only alpha phase before we open up the public beta.
The public beta will last as long as it needs to in order to ship a solid and stable 3.0.0 release. It may run anywhere from a few weeks to a few months. Only time will tell.
