Without looking through the 68 pages of this thread, can you say why these are considered beta?
Linux itself is a perpetual beta, not necessarily from a quality assurance
or stability perspective, but from the constant motion of the kernel,
the gui toolkits, the C libraries, and the outcomes of various power plays.
This requires software devs to plant foundations on sandbanks,
and hope the tides are favourable, knowing that storms are seasonal,
in the best case scenario. Fortunately, a lot of what is under the hood
of a debian system, has a cousin in rpm based systems, and package-building
systems like Arch and Slackware, so a linux based musician never has far
to travel to reach success.
My guess is U-he are happy to see linux customers grow in numbers,
and realize a beta label won't hinder anyone serious about
owning great instruments and effects, while allowing them some leeway
in the technical support arena, where linux users are able to access
and correct system code when needed, rather than waiting on
Apple or Msoft.
