osCmax v2.5 Beta-1 Released

Beta 1 of osCmax v2.5 was officially released Monday. This is a pre-release for testing, and while it is quite stable, it is not recommended production use just yet. After a few weeks of beta testing, if all goes well, v2.5 stable will be generally released for production. For those following development, you will notice that the version number has changed a bit from what we had been using. Due to the large amounts of changes to the code, we wanted to reflect that more accurately with our version number designation, thus the jump to v2.5.

We encourage everyone to download the new version for testing, as it is a major change in osCmax and you will want to get familiar with all the new features and changes.

Become A Beta Tester

We need your help beta testing the new version. I wanted to talk about this a little, as it always seems we have thousands of volunteers to beta test and no actual testers (or very few). All it takes to be a beta tester is to pick one feature and then use that feature every which way you can. While using that feature, note any problems with how it works/doesn't work as compared to how you think it should work. Then report your findings in our issue tracker, making sure to be as detailed as possible with describing the issue and how to reproduce it.

To report an issue officially, you will need to create a "reporter" account on our issue tracker at http://bugtrack.oscmax.com. Once you have created your reporter account, go ahead and get the issues officially on the books.

That is all it takes to be a beta tester. If we had 100 volunteers that each tested one feature like this, beta testing would be over in a week. So, please accept our invitation to become a beta tester and download the osCmax beta release today.
