I was disappointed with the “beta” release for GNU/Linux. It seemed “alpha” to me and was very awkward to install. There’s news of a new release for December, synchronized for That Other OS and GNU/Linux. It should be smoother this time. Perhaps I’ll really get to do something with it.
“The new version is due for release in December on both the Windows and Linux platforms. The Public Beta of 11.5 will be made availble (RP:sic) within the next couple of weeks.”
