I think it is time for the first update, there is still a long way to go but I have made the main gallery (global if you will, so no member albums yet). It misses polish, ajax/flash, lots of video features and comments are barely in. However it should give you an idea on the direction I am taking with a lot of things. You can suggest here however I won't be taking them into consideration as I already have the suggestions from the crowed fund contributors to get through. If you would like to get involved the above link has a FAQ.
For those of you wanting an ETA on public release I don't expect it until early next year as what you are seeing needs to get done and that is only the first half, later comes a full on facebook style album and photos/videos complete with tagging, watermarking, comments, likes and so on.
To the point, here are screenshots of test build 39.
