The development team can only apologise for the lack of progress recently. We are limited in number and have been involved in, dare I say, Paying projects...
Paul (guitaraholic) has been extremely busy with his new job as a middleware expert for a large, well know media company that rhymes with urgin'.
I've been tied up on paying company business and swamped with so much code I could vomit at the site of another "if" statement.
It's back to the rock and to chip away at the encrustation that has formed on the installer code, kernel mods et al. Pick axe in hand (pneumatic drill required) we're at it again.
Still based on debian, SID, SystemD and still with our own installer, going with a themed gnome-shell.
The installer code is in subversion, if you fancy lending a vala hand then get in touch, the more the merrier and the faster it'll be done.
The repo's are down after a server crash. They were outdated so they'll be offline for a while whilst we populate with newer packages ready for the ISO release early next year (2012! Before someone coughs ).
Further updates soon, and please, get in touch if you want to help out, package maintainers, vala coders, plymouth designers, shell themers... we do need your help. Paul and I can't possibly deliver everything we plan to get in the release without YOUR help. Please get in touch and get involved. We had so many ideas and so little resource to deliver.

2012 could mean anywhere from January to December. Can you please be a bit more specific? Happy New Year. Edit: O.k., I just noticed the word EARLY next year. Hopefully, this means sometime before April.
_________________ I'm using another distro now, but I would like to switch back to Aurora a.s.a.a. (as soon as available)
I'm very glad to hear that you're picking up Aurora again! I was on the point of trying to cram another distro onto my 701 4GB but not now (not after a disastrous attempt to dist-upgrade to squeeze ... ). Eagerly awaiting updated packages
Thank you all so much for your efforts with Aurora, it really is a lifesaver for Eee owners
I've had EB4 on my wife's laptop for what seems like over two years now. I check back every so often and this is the closest I've seen to any hint of a 5-beta appearing. Is there any source of more recent material than I've got, the old EB4. She doesn't even know she's on a Beta distribution and I'm going to keep it that way but I'd love to give here a face lift.

I still moderate the board.
That's nice. But what about development? Why continue the board if the Aurora project is dead?
Years ago I though about installing Eeebuntu 3.0 on my eeePC 901 (now still Ubuntu 8.10 with some modifications) but I decided to wait for Aurora to come out of beta. We have been hearing apologies with half year intervals, bur nothing tangible for.... how long? In the Aurora Team Blog there were some pictures of the Exogenesis installer in January 2011 (real or mockups?) and a list of required libs and apps in January 2012, and that's about it.
