Thanks for the newest information, Matt.  Thanks for letting us get a look at what is going on firsthand.  That said, I'll say with some measure of unpopularity no doubt, that I might still wait for the Beta.
So this is Disney World.  Can we live here?

Hi Matt,
Thanks for the update, I'm looking forward to the download and no matter what the issues I will be trying it out.

Thanks for letting us in early.

This makes me really glad that I pre-purchased the app. I can't wait to test out the new features. Thanks Matt!

Matt thank you for your update makes at least me feel slightly less frustrated, apart from the instability, will the speed of renders in this new alpha version be similar or identical to the upcoming beta?

Probably similar, but if a chance arises to improve the speed then of course I will use it :)

However, memory use will probably change between now and the Beta. Multi-threaded rendering currently uses more memory (and it varies with the number of threads), and that can cause a problem with the 2Gb/3Gb limit that Windows imposes on 32-bit applications, but I'm still working on it. Multi-threaded rendering is still an at-your-own-risk option for the time being.

For one thing, we should all be grateful that Planetside is business for customer satisfaction!  I cannot fathom the least of the difficulties they endure while trying to release a quality product - and this one seems to be able to exceed capabilities its predecessors couldn't touch!  I tip my hat and raise my glass to the teamwork that has brought TG2 this far!
I'm going off the rails on this crazy train!

If this release comes out in the next 7 days as Matt said then I will Raise my Glass.

That's a really, really big list! Seeing them all together on one page helps realize how much work went into this!
