	Quite quite :-) so Beta1 will be much better. And given the state of
Beta 0 - treating it as the quiet practise run it is (rather than
announcing it widely) seems to be the best policy ...

	Well - we've fixed a number of the most obvious packaging bugs,
parallel installability etc. etc. in master - so (without further new
problems - of which we expect some up to the freeze) Beta1 will be
rather better.

	Of course it is still -very- early in the schedule:


	We still have 6 releases over two months in order to fix up the misc.
quality issues to get this right enough for a good point-zero
release :-)

	So - beta 1 is due next week; until then perhaps using the master
builds is a good plan (if they're better - they will turn into Beta1

	Thanks for testing ! and sorry if it caused some grief.

	All the best,
