Well, Alpha-1 delivered and there were only a few problems, none of them related to delivery or other “alpha-testing infrastructure”-type things — yay!
Plus, we got some excellent feedback in the forums. Not only that, but I just uploaded the Alpha-2 build, with dozens of new features and fixes. (Should be available to test tomorrow or soon!)
Beta-countdown: 14 (+2)
 The number of things on the to-do list before we can release Beta-1. The parenthetical number is the “bonus items” that aren’t really required for Beta, but I’d like to get them out.
