Hey Kat, a few things have come up.  Originally, we were busy trying to
get the software out of beta, it was changing rapidly, and we wanted to
wait until we had a stable 1.0 release before making the source
available for review.

Since then we've gotten to a point where we're comfortable supporting
the software commercially (although it's free for individual use), but
the current hiccup for source code release is export control.  We've
jumped through the legal hoops to ship RedPhone and TextSecure
internationally, but all new legal hoops emerge in that area for
"published" source code to commercial products.  We hope to resolve
those issues soon.

We'd appreciate it if any cryptography enthusiasts on this list would
like to do a private review of the source.
