    Quick question: I have a big production-ready native iOS app for which I also want to develop an Android app. I really want to make sure the business logic is shared between these two projects, so KMM seems very interesting. On the Kotlin website I see that the KMM is currently classified as Alpha stage? Is there a roadmap/planning when you expect to classify this as Beta?

    I think I read somewhere that it should be promoted to Beta alongside Kotlin 1.7, but it was long time ago and I can’t guarantee that it didn’t change

    I remember back in 2021 they were hoping for spring 2022. Kotlin 1.7 still has the new memory manager disabled by default, and the new memory manager was a required feature before beta, so I'm guessing that it will not be with 1.7.
    I wish there was more communication on what the progress was and when they hope to achieve beta now.

    They announced the beta a while back, but didn't say exactly when. I assumed 1.7 as well.
