Hi Ali,

you will not see pre-release versions on torrents. The final QA testing is
the most critical part. It is when the few say that it is ready for the
many. After that all the fireworks start. Doing installs of QA releases is a
lot more important than people realise. I'm happy that you are going to try
the QA version. As Julien said, if you have a bug.... SHOUT!!!! (But please
do check the known ones before you raise a new one).

Regards,

Phill.
