Futures? Are they still in the works?

I've been reading posts on here for awhile about how futures will eventually be added to the platform, but it seems like everyone has stopped talking about it? Is Quantopian still working on this? I wonder if anyone from Quntopian would be willing to update us on their progress and what kind of features the platform might have.
I really enjoy reading the posts and generally find the content to be good, but I still prefer trading futures to stocks.
Thanks in advance,

Hi Ian,

Thanks for asking. The futures is currently in a closed alpha stage. The plan is to slowly add interested community members to the alpha as we find and fix bugs. Would you be interested in being a part of the alpha?
