Finally, at long last, Beta 1 is here. It’s not without its issues and missing funtions of course, but the core software is solid and it’s the real deal. Real content, really able to purchase tracks, really real.
Lots more to improve upon, and release 1&2 are already full ahead on development. Below is an excerpt from the email I sent out to our first round beta testers (password removed here of course).
For everyone I’ve neglected to respond to emails, please accept my apologies. Starting Wednesday I hope to better about it.
