Dunno if this has been covered here before but I just visited Voidtools.com to re-download & save a copy of Everything to keep in my library "just in case" & noticed new (Beta) versions being issued... there hadn't been any development for a period of about 3 1/2 yrs or so (Nov '09 - Jan '13) Version 1.2.1.371 is still listed as latest "stable" version (March '09).

My question is: has anyone "played" with any of the newer Beta versions and if so would you please share thoughts, observations, likes, dislikes etc. and does anyone know if this is still the project of the original developer or otherwise?

 

TIA!

IMO..."beta" means "not ready for prime time.

 

No one knows how far from ready...just that it's not ready for distribution...and it has bugs (in all likelihood).

 

Unless he/she wants to be a guinea pig for the developer...I suggest leaving any beta version of any program...alone.  There is no guarantee that the final release will bear any resemblance to the beta so I don't see any point in gathering data on a beta, unless you are the developer.

Hi -

 

Just to jump in and add a few words from exile360 @ MBAM when asked why MBAR is still called "BETA".

 

His answer was fairly simple - The quote may not be exact, but was along the lines of ...................

 

"" The program will never be finished as it is being updated all the time, so it will always be BETA ""
