Whenever our Fearless Leader(sm) Gerald decides there's enough improvments/security fixes collected in the repository to be pushed out as a release he'll start the process.
About Beta software; technically Wireshark still is beta software until 
we reach 1.0. But then again what defines a 1.0 release?
What you probably mean is that they won't allow development builds on 
their production machines. I can see that. So one workaround is to put 
the unistim plugin in a 0.99.6 build and see if it works. Remember this 
isn't supported practice. Plugins need to be build for that particular 
release in order to guarantee API compatibility. The way to make sure it 
is compatible is to incorporate the unistim plugin source in your own 
0.99.6 build tree and create a plugin from that.
