If the builds are meant to be shared only for that then the sharing should be "Invite based" and not shared with everyone. this will also help keeping tester audiance more helpfull as most testers will at least have a tiny bit of technical knoledge. A problem with this logic is that if it was invite only, with a thread for feedback , then can you imagine how many folks would look at all the great looking pics and complain "Why can't I try this, too?" There would be just as much whining as now, no additional feedback, and less publicity for the app. Altogether a losing proposition. @Hap, while I greatly appreciate you not posting your "solution", and I understand you are annoyed by the way BM set it up, I think it is incredibly disrespectful for you to even mention your "solution" at all, especially in this thread! If nothing else you should have opened your own thread. This thread is about support for Aero Glass, not for working around its protections. In fact, on some boards, working around software protections is considered the same as discussing warez and is grounds for being banned from the board. Cheers and Regards Think of it this way people are going to complain and ask for someting like what I done anyway.... Instead of BM ignoring that or actually do remove the those stuff and releasing he could focus on getting final version ready So In a way I am supporting
If you make it avalible then yes I get an urge and I do think that early betas should be closed with plenty of debug info, late betas open, non annoying, with verbose logging in background. this way you'l get very detailed constructive feedback from people who actually have technical interest in this and not just downloading for the eye candy. and in later stages you'l have the wider feedback to cover the small stuff left.
