Apparently you are many to ask for regular betas. Let's see how you see the timing of beta.

In the long run, I'd rather have a bi-weekly schedule. More time means more time to polish things and less testing each thing to see if it still works.

Right now, seems like a new beta is needed every few days, as most of the stitcher, optimizer, blender etc bugs are squashed. But provided this all is stable (which state I guess APP will reach before 2.0), then two weeks seems a nice timeframe.

Since nothing will be added in this release, I suggest a beta release whenever valuable functionality is fixed and believed debugged. That could be a couple of days, a week, or two weeks.

That is, drive the schedule functionally. That way, you will get the quickest turnaround on field testing.

This is a good idea

Alexandre,

I'm bumping this topic as it is probably outdated and should be closed, but I cannot do it (error 404 upon clicking "Close topic"; /moderatepoll.php not found).

I think it should be posted anew when we enter 1.4 betas or just close it, as it's not really relevant. Close this and remove my last post, so the topic sorts with the older ones.

Seems that the polling system misses some files.
