I have a AMD quad core system I've built that is ready for a clean install and wonder if anyone knows of a Beta floating around available for feedback.
Cheers, the Cheese

No Beta as far as I know. Public Beta is coming soon. However the 7955 build has been very stable for some. If you would like to use it till the Beta arrives maybe this Summer. :party:

The only builds released (leaked) so far are 7850, 7955, and 7959. Builds 7850 and 7955 (which I am currently using) are 32-bit client builds, whereas 7959 is a 64-bit server build. There is a rumour (and I stress that it is only a rumour) of build 7971 leaking on or around May 10th.

That would be pretty cool.

~update~

Build 7927 leaked on Aug/29 and it's quite stable. It's much like 7955.
Build 7989 leaked on Jun/18 and it's a 64-bit client
