Cheers, but I was originally responding to the email i received (subject "Vice 2.00 Now Available"), which starts "A new version of Vice is now available" and didnt mention that its was a beta.
I honestly dont know whether Im a registered beta tester or not, but Ive had three Vice2 update emails since the first one. I get interim update notices for all Granite, Nuance, and Vice, including betas, but I assumed that was common to all users; Ive never 'registered; as a beta tester...Secondly while the initial 2.0 public beta email was sent out to registered beta testers only, then due to another error, a 2.0001 update email was sent to some users outside of the beta-tester group. That email only mentioned 2 minor fixes (since 2.0000) which would have been confusing for anyone who only received that email..
These 3 have referred to the updates as being betas, but as they follow the pattern of emails about previous product betas Ive had, that didnt clarify the V2 as not actually being a full release.
Cheers for that.Later (and of course before the 2.0 is officially released), you will be also be able to get to the checkout page by a link within the user area, but that's not quite ready yet.
