Alpha / Beta is limited to the testers.
There have sometimes been 2 or more releases in a day if a bug was
picked up quickly and fixed the same day or if a suggestion has been
made and Dave has leapt on it as a quick win. With that frequency
letting them loose in the wild would be a nightmare even given that most
of the releases are RC standard really.

I have let slip testing PSKmail with the alpha's but the dark winter
nights are now on us so I may get back to doing a bit more on that

My feeling is we can't be that far from an Fldigi upgrade not that I
have any inside knowledge
