When the science is done

As long as there are new scientific features to add and parts of the game to upgrade, we will keep working on making it better!

For the good of all of us...

Now the coded data makes for beautiful lines.
And we're still in beta, not releasing for-all time.
I'm not MaD cuz it's still fun.
Think of all the things we learned.

Go ahead and tease me!

THAT. WAS. A. JOKE . . .
HA-HA . . .
Any'ways, all the bugs I hate...
Because they crash-my-game-too-damn-much!

Look at me stiiillll tal'king, when there's fol'ding tooo doooo...
When I look on Discord, it makes me GLaD I'm nooot yooouuu!
I've got recipes to run,
There's more folding to be done,
On those peptides that are...
Still alive?

Well-ok-fine they aren't, but I'M still-alive...
I'm doing real science 'cuz I'm, still alive...
I need more FEATURES, and I'll suggest them...
While you're coding, I'll be sugges-ting...
And when you graduate, I'll still be sugges-ting...
Still suggesting...

How do you know it's a perpetual beta? Is this an official position? I couldn't find anything about this on the website.

You only cited the Wikipedia article, but the Wikipedia article doesn't cite anything. So it can't be used as a source.
