Hello
on the J! 1.6 beta 6 announcement there is a little mistake:
This is the fifth in our series of continuous beta releases. Beta 7 will be released on August 9, 2010.
the mistake marked bold.

Regards

Generally any development will entail Alpha releases considered full of bugs, partially operation.

Once at the Beta stage, considered generally operation, possibly containing some quirks (bugs).

Then with the “Stable” releases most enjoy.

Fifth release, Beta 7 (possibly meaning that the first two were in Alpha, last five in Beta, totaling seven (7)).

Or, the first two Beta's, were not publically released, once past the Alpha stages.

Could read this either way.

Hope this helps!

Is it not supposed to be:
This is the sixth in our series of continuous beta releases
??

Correct:

Alpha 1 (release one)
Alpha 2 (release two)
Beta 1 (release three)
Beta 2 (release four)
Beta 3 (release five)
Beta 4 (release six)
Beta 5 (release seven - but is the fifth relese in "BETA", not counting previous "Alpha" releases.)

At least, this is how I read the article...

Hope this helps!

Actually, the OP is correct. There were two Alpha releases then the first Beta was released in May and updates have been released every two weeks after. This is indeed the sixth beta release and Beta 7 will be the next.

Recently found this article stating there were in fact 7 Beta releases:

That nullifies my previous interpretation.

oc666 is correct.

Hope this helps!
