As a newcomer, I started by reading the wiki and following examples.
The quick-start guide failed, so I just backed out of the beta to the
released version.  The wiki recommends using the beta release to
protect against on-disk format changes that may happen.

Is it really good to make ant necessary to use the binary
distribution?  Might as well just stop distributing the binary if you
need a developer environment to use it anyway.

But now I know what to do to use beta2 so perhaps I'll try again with
that.  Thanks for the info.
