We haven’t time to formalize and administer a release. A release version must be supported formally with monitoring of this blog, the forum, and redmine bug reporting communication tools. Additionally, we would have to provide crash reporting and followup. Staying in the development/beta cycle allows the team to push changes quickly and get them into your (our user base ) hands quickly. Some users shy away from any beta software and may have been lost because of that. Some users seem to embrace change and actively seek new viewers to test. The beta and development viewers we provide are maturing nicely and should provide a stable viewing experience. We have two (2) developer feeder repositories that maintain viewer installer downloads. For Apple https://bitbucket.org/Kentron/kokua-3.3.4-dev-mac/downloads; for Windows, Linux 32 bit, and Linux 64 bit https://bitbucket.org/NickyP/kokua-dev/downloads. These feed into our team repository at https://bitbucket.org/kokua/kokua-beta. There is a downloads area on kokua-beta but, it will lag behind the developer’s repositories. If you have a bitbucket.org account you can follow a repository and track its activity or use the RSS feed to track an accounts activity.
