Because giving unfettered access to beta versions was never a good idea.
Do companies typically provide open access to beta versions?? To undisclosed integrator #1??
I disagreed with your post, because I provide update codes to our beta testing partners and my cell phone, office phone and email address are all over the DW website. If reaching out to me is a ‘real hassle’ over a link (that should never have been public) then so be it. But IMO beta testing partners should provide relevant feedback to assist in timely releases.
Undisclosed Integrator #1,
“I didn't think it was too much to ask to have access to new features for testing as soon as they are made available.” – You still have not asked.
Not sure you have adequate knowledge about me to know how I feel.
Our development partner agreed with shutting down the page you reference.
And yes I am well aware that all new releases were not posted to our site at the same time as the page you mention, which was never meant to be public. Since we are in the front line position to support all new releases, there are items we need fixed prior to release. Being the keen observer of the private page you reference, I am sure you noticed some of the patches that quickly followed each release; our support team may have had something to do with some of these patches.
Release notes are on our website - Release Notes
The DW Spectrum page on our website contains version 3.1, version 3.0 and a current link to previous versions.
“Version 3.2 beta is already being released on the NX side.” – Yes, well aware because I have authorized access to it, as do our preferred partners. But neither the DW side or Nx side has released it for general public consumption.
