What is a beta programme?

Linn has a beta programme to allow external use and testing of new software and hardware prior to its formal release.

The beta programme helps ensure that an upcoming release of software works in as many of those different environments as possible.

  • Are willing to discuss their experiences on the development forum (http://forums.linn.co.uk/bb/forumdisplay.php?fid=5)
  • Are willing to raise bugs on http://products.linn.co.uk/trac/ and then track and test the potential solutions to those bugs.
