    So I could download 1.4, then upgrade the files to beta, is that correct?

    Well if you read the very first post in this thread, you would have seen this part:

    Microsoft ships Windows Defender with Vista, however, Spybot-S&D can now easily integrate into the Vista Security Center; which will then monitor if Spybot-S&D is up-to-date and whether the permanent protection (TeaTimer) is running or not.
    This update will only show on Vista systems, since previous Windows versions do not offer anti malware integration into WSC.

    3. And how to regress those versions should they run into problems while testing.
    Good points! As a first step, I'll make version numbers easier to find than having to look at file properties. And create a page on the website dedicated to beta information!

    Well, lots of folks don't have bunches of time to read multiple pages of each long thread, so they fast forward to see what the latest news is. I think that is a good reason for having all beta release downloads in an obvious and perhaps locked thread. And to have the board's default settings not break threads into so many separate pages. I guess I'm getting old, but it seems far too common nowadays to reply to requests for help by posting a link from some other thread and without saying so in so many words that the person requesting the help is either too lazy or too dim to warrant the favor of a kind response. On the other hand, I do understand, however, that sometimes folks don't even check the FAQs before posting, and I certainly am not condoning that. More often than not, I think it is the tone or attitude of posts that can cause misunderstandings... I've gone off topic. I'm done. Thanks.

    You may also want to consider changing the name of the installer to show beta version. 1.5b1, 1.5b2, 1.5b3. Indicating Beta 1, 2, 3. These being the official released betas for testing. So 1.5b3 would be the third released beta test from you.

    Well, it's "1.5.1.12 beta" now; might make the next one clearer by using "1.5.1.nn (beta 3)"

    Internal naming is fine, I was mentioning the actual name of the file we download to install from. So far they have all been called "spybotsd15". Name next "spybot15b3" this way we know we have the latest file prior to download. Though I guess doing this makes it so you have to change HTML on webpage.
