Doug: yes, I realize that. I have it on and "on purpose". My comment is only in regards to Brian's statement that:
On every beta release it reads thusly:
This is a beta release of RapidWeaver, do not install this unless you are comfortable with using pre-release software. Please backup all of your project before using.
Also, when reporting bugs in the beta release, please use the GREEN feedback button at the top right of the Rapidweaver.
This clearly doesn't happen. Or, if it happens for you, there's a lot of us that it doesn't happen for. It seems Brian is frustrated that folks don't read this notice when there's a new beta update. All I'm saying is there is no such notice for most of us to read.
I don't get fooled because (1) I'm willing to test out betas, and (2) I can infer from the numbering of the new update that it's a beta. But nothing is explicitly indicated. And, in turn, that might partly explain why a number of people were surprised they downloaded a beta.
BTW with some software I'll check the enable beta updates option): but that other software always clearly indicates if the new update is "beta" or "real/final". It's a standard of communication that I think a lot of people are used to.
