Notes on the current Beta release:
Beta testing in Above & Beyond 2004 has been completed.
The benefit to beta testing is that you can test to make sure the features most important to you are working and satisfactory to you before the production release. The developers are receptive during beta testing to making changes and correcting bugs. No changes are expected to be made after beta testing ends, so do your testing early. You do not get a free license or other compensation for beta testing.
