Well,  thanks for the complement .. :-)
But of course  ... I don't think that it is the intention of  the 
"mighty schedule" to hurt anyone or let alone the project :-) - we are 
all learning how this should work best for us. And that definitely will 
change over the months, years...

Well, I don't see any betas coming for the 3.4.x branch, so whether is 
has been added or not, does not make sense.
I only can point to my favourite page: 

I hope that helps people to run more versions (early versions) on 
Windows too, so that it give them the opportunity to give feed back in 
an early stage.
(Personal note: I really appreciate that I have not (or only seldom) to 
work with Windows any more. Public drawback: I cannot do serious testing 
there and already find it hard to understand, to follow the items going 
on Windows.)
