I'm curious whether it was true ten months ago when the email to
which you're responding was posted.  What was the date of the
production release of Trusted RUBIX DBMS with support for SELinux?
The earliest date I could find of a page describing this on the site
you referenced was 18 November 2011, which was months after both
Josh's post and the last modification to the Wiki page about the 9.1
release you mention in another post.

We can't change the history of posts on the lists.  There's a recent
thread on the topic you might want to review:

I doubt that anyone is still "talking up" a beta release five months
after the production release.  As I said, it's good to know that
this other product is now out there, so that the current state of
affairs can be accurately described in new discussions, posts, etc.
