We're 4 1/2 months into 2014 and we have yet to see a driver release this year. Is there something I'm missing? Are there problems going on, behind the scenes?

Probably they won't release anything until they get mantle to work properly on all supported cards. However, betas are full releases, only without a WHQL signature, so feel free to use them. They're not unstable or anything...

Look for one next week alongside the Radeon R9 295x2. Catalyst 14.4 is already in the hands of the board partners, and possibly in the Microsoft WHQL getting certified as well.
