Newsletter #10

A new issue of the Seed newsletter arrived in mail boxes today. In it, Morten Juul talks about beta progress, as well as the revised release date. Of special interest is the following:
Beta-wise we have completed our first preliminary stress test, and we were able to identify and subsequently address various lag issues. A rather limited number of testers took part in the test, which might be due to unfortunate timing from us – a stress test during Danish working hours means Europeans at work/school and Americans asleep. We plan to do more of these on a regular basis at a more convenient time for the testers. This will mean overtime for us, but we might as well get used to it, as launch draws closer :).

It is also time to let in another batch of Beta testers. Tomorrow, Wednesday March 15th, at 14:00 CET (8:00 AM EST) another 1,000 testers will get invited, bringing the total number of Beta testers to 2,000. Our plan is to bring in new batches of testers on an ongoing basis, ending with an open Beta the last 14 days of April 2006.
