The entire vb
4.0 beta1 to GOLD period was only 6 weeks. RC was only out for 2 weeks so not sure what you mean by available for quite some time.
We gained access to the vbulletin beta code from them about the first week of November. Simply put vbulletin rushed 4.0 to market and did not give developers time to develop products that went with it. We are working as fast as we can but its only been about 8 weeks total since we have had access to the first vb
beta code. That simply is not enough time to rewrite an entire application like vbGallery. As Michael posted we hope to have something soon.
