Beta Tester program starts

Hi all, today we are announcing a new program and it’s all about testing the latest versions of Gephi. Anyone can join the program and test the development version, send feedback and discuss features. We want to build a team of beta-testers who the developers can work with to detect issues before the software reaches the standard users.

So far, testing has been done by a small group of developers and users but we would like to extend it to a larger audience. There are many different versions of Windows, Mac OS X and Linux Gephi supports. Testers will help to detect compatibility issues specific on a single platform and overall participate in testing new features.

To make this effort successful, we’re making it super easy to test the latest development version without requiring to know about programming or how Gephi is built. We’re introducing a nightly build package which gets updated automatically every night with the latest version of the code. Once downloaded and installed, this version of Gephi will ask you to update itself every time a new version is available so you don’t have to download and install Gephi over and over again. If you’re already familiar with Gephi’s auto update capability, this is using the same system.

How to get started?
