the beta is still on test i am now using beta3 we will have to wait till the beta's and RC versions are completed and the final version is released to the public may take a while. you can continue to use the beta's still.
sunnystaines is correct - you can keep using the beta until the full version comes out, and then we'll be sending on a boxed version. Symantec has your details (I've just double checked and you're both on there).
Incidentally, I genuinely don't know, but my best guess is some time in March for the final product.
