No - the title might require modification (done) - the thread is not.

we will most definatley be issuing all significant new releases to beta testers before making them publcially available.

I sent an email to the above address offering to be a beta tester, but I never heard back. Is the beta testing invitation closed now?

For now - there are no products currently being offered under a beta program - however, this will change later this Summer/Autumn and early next year as we prepare new Major releases - apologies for not replying directly - but we have retained all such emails and will contact all parties as soon as products are nearing release for beta testing.

Thanks

Hi Mico Siahaan,

we do not have formal requirements, all candidates that indicate their interest will be considered, not all will be chosen. We will likely give preference to our long standing customers who have supported us through the years...

Hi Paul,

Any word on when the beta version will be available? The version 3 sticky says the next version "will be available before the end of Q2 of this year."

I'm not sure when the second fiscal quarter ends for Tracker software, but for the US gov't it ended in March.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fiscal_year

Thanks,
Andre

Hi hsrstud,

we are in Canada so going by your chart we have until the end of September! Thanks for that! ;-)

Seriously though we are looking at the end of Spring and while we are not going to give a date it is still on track for that.

Today is officially the first day of summer. Any updates on V3 now that it's the end of spring/Q2?

I'd gladly be a beta tester for this.

Hello, it's been a few months now since the last update. Do you see a light at the end of the tunnel for V3 yet?

Hello kerbumble,

Yes we do - but we are still not ready for a beta yet I am afraid.
When the time is right you can be sure we will announce it!

If you are looking for beta testers, I'd love to take part (for v. 3.0). I think you can get my email from my profile, if not, lemme know who to send it to.

Eagerly awaiting 3.0.... :D

Seeing as the next major version is scheduled for release in less than a month, I'm guessing you decided not to release a beta version?

Hi hsrstud,

We don't have an official decision not to release a beta - but it might be for just a week or two before the actual release date.

There is still no final decision on this matter - so if there is a beta everyone that volunteered will be contacted with instructions how to download and install it.

Best,
Stefan

I just noticed in the "firm dates" press release that the Viewer V3 SDK is delayed yet again until the end of October. Will this product ever get out?

Not entirely rhetorical. I think it's fair to ask since V3 has been delayed 4 times now (end-of-summer 2010 to January 2011 to end-of-Q2 2011 to end-of-June 2012 to October 2012). At every juncture, I've been told that you're "99.99% sure this is a reliable date" or the dates are advertised as "firm dates". Surely you can understand my cynicism at this point?

Hi kerbumble,

a full explanation of the reasoning behind this is available here: http://www.tracker-software.com/company ... s/view/116

I can fully understand your feelings, I'm very confident that this will be worth the wait. :)
