Dear users,

It has come to my attention that in release 3.18.1 I caused some trouble due to the requirement of the webp format. This situation affected ~7% of those who downloaded 3.18.1, less than 0.1% of all installations. It affected this small portion of users because on Saturday morning I halted access to the conflicting release. I did this because even after publishing a hotfix many users just ran in panic and it was evident that the requirement was too much and it will just get worse.

I will keep pushing more modern libraries and requirements for Chevereto V3 until the LTS ends, but I don't want to cause this panic again. That's why I'm making the beta channel the main releases stream channel from now.

All new releases will be first released to beta testers only and it will remain restricted once all quirks and known-issues gets over which could take days, weeks or even months depending on how long beta testers take. Bug tracking and support will be normally delivered for these beta users in the main channels.

Beta access will be restricted to 50 people, currently there are 37 so I will grant beta access to 13 users requesting it right here in this topic.

We could have polls for beta members after every release in threads

Will see how it unwraps, I don't want to keep adding plans for this kind of stuff. Lets see how it goes and shape it to the use case/needs.

Beta testing may takes months. Sounds like a pretty long time, even the best of the best software are not bug free. Hopefully it will not take too long to add new features.

I can also but often I test locally and very often it works. This is not the case with accommodation. Or else I have to build a test base. In addition I am French and the English language is by translate google. . You can register me and I will see if I have to continue. GP
