In case you haven't been following the updates on the forum and only waiting for your wallet and your shares.
From what I understand, the reasons for the delay was the discovery of the possibility of a non trivial attack. That attack was not known before the first release estimate was made. Why isn't anybody relieved that the problem was discovered before trading bitshares started? I3 had to design a new solution after the snapshot and delivery estimate was made. This new solution was now also made to help the creation of all future chains and speed up future developments.
Last week they ran the first test of the new system and ran into a number of show-stopping bugs that they are fixing right now and they expect to have those bugs fixed shortly and have the testnet back up this week. So if that test-network keeps working as expected, not only will you get your non-test-wallet up and running shortly after, but quite a few of the announced DACs will be ready to go as well.
While I see a lot of complaints about I3 and how they lack something or other, I'm not really certain all those claims are actually legitimate. Certainly not in comparison to other projects I've seen. I have not seen other teams produce 2 completely new PoS blockchain solutions in a similar timeframe, 3 blockchain solutions actually if you include the PTS-chain experiment. Also publishing a chain that is not robust or tested and that fails catastrophically seems to me to be a far worse deal than waiting a bit longer for a tested model. I'm starting to suspect people underestimate the difficulty and work required in order to design a network like this. I don't think you can expect results in the same time frame it takes to barf on your keyboard.
I'm not being a fanboy here. Well funded people working full time on just making an alternative implementation of bitcoin-core to make the network more decentralized have taken years to complete(if they ever get to that stage) and they even have an example to go by. So why would a completely new network, which seems to be quite a bit more complex than bitcoin take not at least a few months to work out?
