    • BETAs: We have two possible betas to serve up...
      • BETA-1: The 32bit 'FAST' release - although I believe it is solid, I'm offering it as a beta for now so it gets a bit more testing.
      • BETA-2: a 64bit build. this is truly beta, as there are known problems. I am hoping to have this in the next week or so... watch this space.
