Notes from the Developers:

Bugfixing: This version is basically a bugfixing of the errors found in the previous released version

Website: We have also a bug in the website that we are unable to catch, please help us to found it! It’s basically an infinite-redirection loop that shows an error in your browser when you try to access to a specific page, like the downloads, it happens only sometimes and only to some users, so if you see the error please contact Thanatermesis asap! so he can disable plugins and configurations to know which one is the cause and solve it. Thank you!


We need your feedback, each new beta version could include things not working as expected, if is the case please contact us so that we can fix the problem asap.

The beta versions are not so optimized as the Stable ones due to debug flags and developer profiles, its also less beautiful and less ready for the end users, you can encounter errors or uncomplete things, if you want a more polished system try the Stable version instead.
