I doubt they would want to put a schedule together like that, there will be no set numbers for Betas, they will go to RC when ready whether there have been 3 betas or more. Then again there will be as many RC's as they need.

3 is not a magic number. We happened to have 3 alphas because that is how many we needed in this case. We will use as many beta and RC versions as needed to make the software stable.

Beta 2 already! Wow... Great to see excellent progress. By the looks of it, we could have a final release by Xmas this year if it goes at this pace. Fingers crossed and v excited to view the progress. :)

Great work, this way we will have 3.1 sooner then I expected (2015 :D ) . A little bit offtopic question, but do you plan to redesign buttons and input fields for prosilver before final release? The design of new "imageset" buttons is pretty good, it would be great to use it on all buttons/fields

Being the selfish person that I am... I would like to see more pull requests merged before b2.
