There have been a number of discussions in the community regarding Alpha build access recently. We are continuing to discuss our current participation strategy and will finalize any changes/communicate to the community, once we release the updated Alpha build. Our current top 3 tasks regarding Alpha participation are as follows:

  • Ensure that everyone that received an acceptance email has access to the Alpha.

  • Ensure that those that registered early for pre-release build testing, have access to the Alpha.

  • Assess Alpha participation options for adding more people as quickly as possible.
