This is just to let everyone know that we've just (late last night) made a very early prerelease version of EigenD 2.0 available to developers who are attending the EigenD Devcon in several weeks (with the inclusion of Mike Milton who has been helping us with testing for some time). This is based on the code that they'll be working with there, so we wanted them all to have the opportunity to play with it beforehand.
This is what is best described as 'very experimental' and is a version that isn't yet suitable for general release. It has bugs (several of which cause it to crash) and lacks some features that are due to be put in before our first public 'Experimental'. It's not yet in a state that we think is suitable for general release (and certainly not to ask for money for access to). It has no factory setups, so you pretty much have to start from scratch each time and the documentation is still incomplete.
It's very close to good enough though and we think that we'll probably make it available for the next release or perhaps the one after in the New Year, certainly in early January, so it won't be long before you'll all have the opportunity to suffer with an early version of 2.0. In the meantime please bear with everyone who is experimenting with it in the developer community - it won't be long before it's ready for more general and critical stress and we're hopeful that this little bit of wider testing will make your early experiences much nicer.
We're all off on holiday now until the 3rd (and the dev team have been putting in very long hours getting 2.0 ready so I think they're going to enjoy a well deserved rest) but we'll be keeping in touch over the next couple of weeks from time to time.
Have a great Christmas, and enjoy playing your 'harps!
