I also ordered at that time.  I understand the ad for the new version got
run prematurely, orders started rolling in, they tried to get the product
ready more quickly than planned to meet the demand, but decided (wisely) in
the end to keep to the original plan of thorough field testing by Beta
customers.  That's the way Dennis has done it over the years, and quality
has been good.  Since I manage a software development group for a living,
he asked me to do some of the testing.  Haven't enjoyed testing software so
much in years!  Sure beats worrying about whether my customers' bean
counters will like a new product or not.
