Thanks, Daniel! Again, apologizes about that. I'm taking your concern very seriously, and will further on try to post only most relevant and least self-promoting content on DN.
No solid date set yet, but it's certainly going to be next month. We will surely keep you tuned ;)
We'd mentioned that some of the features are still being polished, but the "meat of the product" is there. Phase is really the first digital design tool to allow you create isolated interactions visually with dynamic selectors, styles, conditions (absolutely none design tools handle conditions, which is crazy).
Thank you for the healthy skepticism though. Hopefully it'll dispel once we release the working products and you try it yourself :)
Phase is real.
In fact, we'd recently presented first ever Phase demo on a meetup in Berlin.
You can watch us creating interactions with the basic building blocks of interactions. Same things that would take 5-15 min in code took us just 15 seconds.
Companies and products before did promise certain things and deadlines - then failed to deliver.
Trust us - that's not us.
We're being super opened with the community about the status and progress on Phase. You can read the latest update here.
In our case, it's really just a little delay. Literally 3-4 weeks from now we will release Phase v1 to a bunch of friends. Then once they say it's stable and works - we'll just release it to everyone. No staggered rollout, no waiting list. None of that stuff.
Thanks, Kip! The responsive layouts UI we'd shared a while ago is actually still heavy WIP. We start off the complicated UI to make sure we don't miss anything --> then simplify it until it's intuitive and simple.
We're posting latest UI sneak peeks in our Slack community, welcome to contribute to the discussion in there ;)
Don't worry, we're working hard making Phase UI simple and accessible ;) The screens posted a while ago are still heavy WIP. We're making the UI complex at first to make sure we don't miss on anything --> then trim it down from there.
Thank you Roman!

Thanks for kind words, Kip! Phase is actually rethinking Libraries in many ways. Components in our web and mobile apps are much more than SVG symbols, right? So of course, the components in Phase are elements, timings, values, properties. Even dynamic layouts are components too! All with deep and dynamic composition and flexible overrides.
Both Dynamic Layouts and Libraries are coming in Phase v2+ - but that'd be only a few months after the release.
