    A new beta came out, yet, I had to visit the forums to find out. How come I didn't get an email announcing it?

    Also, I can't seem to figure out how to subscribe to a frorum (not a thread, but the whole "Announcements" forum)

    I think all announcements, or at least PAID license holders should receive an email that a new version of the software is available to download. It shouldn't be by chance of visiting here that they are made aware they're forum isn't up to date.

    I was upset to see the first beta sale happened without email notice. I would have bought a forum license then. I can't imagine how many others would have done the same if they knew it was happening. How many people preordered VB4 due to an email notice the sale was going on? Honestly, if xen wants to grow by a significant amount of licenses, they should be emailing all registered users when new updates are out. If they don't want notices, they can opt out.

    admincp/ users / email users - is there a reason kier or others aren't doing this when updates are released?

    I'm sure we'll see bigger promoting once the final versions are out. Remember, we're still in the Release Candidate stage - which shouldn't really be used on an active community.

    You can also follow them on Twitter... I've seen release announcements there.

    Yet we're using that same product on an active site to communicate currently?

    but one of the headers on the updates state:
    This is Unsupported Software

    I think that says enough really, we can't expect them to build everything in when the product isn't finished yet. Technically they are selling you a car, but telling you that you shouldn't drive it - if you do drive it, it's your own risk and we won't support you driving it.

    Technically, this software shouldn't be used on live sites (even though most of us are), they have no obligation to do this yet.
