If you are familiar with typical industry practices, then you are out of luck. Public beta testing is usually used for QA testing before RTM (release to manufacturing). All they are going to do at this point is fix major bugs, no new features will be added unless it is determined that it would mitigate a major issue.

Just speaking from professional experience.

I participated in several FUT's so experienced with the principle, however FR's done in this stage are very common to be added in R+1 or 2 depending on de the release frequency. Besides, it's always nice to get together with enthousiastic people to get new ideas and insights.

the day for the new and (hopefully) exiting UI7 Beta has finally arrived. End of this week we have the oppurtunity to tell MCV (MiCasaVera?) what we think and the option to find all bugs before it comes out. I like this new strategy and it will sure be beneficial for both users and manufacturer of the vera domotica controller. I'm looking forward to test it. This thread would be a good place to use for thoughts and experiences with new UI7 beta.

Is this possible? Wasn't there mention of a NDA?
My forum account was apparently hacked by a leprechaun. And he's drunk all of the time. If a post of mine seems a little off kilter, it's probably because he made it.

Registration seems only to allow me to specify only one Vera serial number.  What if I have multiple Veras...?

Though I have no plans on joining the Beta unless I upgrade to a Vera3 and I can use my VeraLite as a test bed, I hope that they don't keep users "hush hush" about it. If it were Alpha, I could see needing an NDA, but a public beta like this should be open and allow everyone to see/hear what is in the new version.

That's my $.02 on the subject. I won't say another thing unless I get my Vera3 and opt into the beta.
VeraLite (Live); ISY 994i (Live); Vera 3 (Waiting to replace VeraLite); Vera Edge (Waiting for all the bugs to be fixed); Xuan StackBox (Testing and waiting for more plugins and for it to mature)
Countless z-wave and insteon devices :D
