Sweet, early BD present. Though I won't use forums for awhile, it will most likely be there when I do need it. ;)

Well, of course it says beta3 dev. Beta2 is already out, they are not developing it anymore or fixing any bugs. Beta2 is just beta2. Whatever work they do now is working on beta3. As soon as beta3 is launched, whatever work they do would be qualified as beta4dev. Or if they are not planning on a beta 4, then rc1dev.

IMHO they will change from beta3 to beta4-dev under all circumstances unless they are about to release rc1 without having changed the db schema, then they will go directly from beta3 to rc1. As Acyd Burn stated there is no way back from rc1-dev to beta4 because when doing a version compare rc1-dev would be greater.

We are talking about software development. How hard it is to plan is easily demonstrated by the Vista release dates. It is like an addition to Murpys laws: "If there is really really nothing what could go wrong any more, there will be an horrible desaster in the next moment, so horrible you could not have imagined in your wildest dreams" :mrgreen:
