Hi Charles, That may be true, and I personally agree with you. However, not everyone shares that opinion or has the same expectations. Beta 18 was a fairly stable release, had decent audio, full joystick/mouse support, analog jumping, and so forth so the public was expecting something like that for beta 19. When they discovered some setbacks, degration of features, based on a different version of the engine it wasn't at at all what they had come to expect based on prior history of the project. What Philip said is true. Some warning or note that this was experimental code with degrated features might have prepared the public for what was to be expected.
