There is a lot of software out there these days. Im going to use Adobe as a example here........Adobe Products have been around for ever. And they constantly find ways to improve their products and when they do they usually come out with a new version and a long list of issues that have been fixed and long list of new features that make the old version of their products better. They do this even though their products are now longer in the "Beta" Phase. They make fixes and add services and features and call it a new version. They dont call it "Photoshop CSS 5.5" Beta.

Gamesalad has a product here that has been on the market for sometime now. It is a product that its customers Free and Pro a like are making money from. This product is popular enough to have married into other 3rd party services. This product not only does iOS devices. But android phone,tablets, Mac computers. Offers a multitude of ways to publish. My question is this.......... Why are you still calling this beta? Do you feel its beta until there are no more bugs to be fixed or no more features to be added? Adobe and many other software developers continue to improve their software with new bug fixes and features and services. But they have been out of "Beta" for a long time. Whast keeping you guys from calling this latest version of Gamesalad 1.0?

    Ok. But isnt it safe to say that even when you do go 1.0. That you will still be "actively upgrading and refining the infrastructure and architecture"

    Adobe has very lil in common with game salad??

    Adobe provides a tool that assist its customers to create a finished product. These customers continue to give feedback on issues and ideas for new features. And Adobe continues to strive to improve its products. GS provides a tool to assist its customers to create a finished product. These customers continue to give feedback on issues and ideas for new features and ways to improve said tool. And GS continues to strive to improve its product.

    Its your puppy.... you call it what ya want..... I was just curious as to what was hold you guys back from calling it 1.0. I hope you guys dont stop making changes and additions just because its called 1.0

    Here is a good way to ask it.

    Monday its beta... Next Monday its 1.0..... what will have happened Tuesday - Sunday to have made the transition from Beta to 1.0?
