De YellowOnline Mini is nu in Beta met codenaam Josephine. Vermoedelijk ergens in augustus volgt de echte release. Voorlopig zijn er nog geen bugs gevonden. De Heart™, Brains™, Lungs™, Spine™ en Limb™ modules zijn aanwezig. De Penis™ module is waarschijnlijk voor een volgende versie van het product.
