What is a beta?
We look at a beta release in the following way; we tested the separate functions of the program and think they work.
We did one round of regression testing and think that all the separate functions work correctly with each other.
Also we might not add any new functionality until the program is released.
Why release a beta version?
We believe the program works on our computers/printers etc, what we like to know, does the program do what you expect on your computer.
What do I get for testing?
Submit an original and well-described play or drill created with one of the programs and we will send you an activation key for the final version.
If something did or didn't work the way you expected then please send us an e-mail to playbookbeta(at)jes-soft.com with the following information.
A description of what went wrong.
Which OS are you using (macOS, Windows 10, Windows 8.x, Windows 7).
What kind of display you are using (1 screen/2 screens and color depth).
Printer you are using ( if it is a printing error).
A screen shot.
Any thing you might think is useful.
If you find an error/bug in the program we can recreate and isn't on our list we will send an activation key to you.
