I guess because of similar issues, but found in time before making it public.
It got tagged AFAIK so it needed to be skipped.

Hm, that one... iirc think after tagging beta3 there were some... irregularities found in network games nobody could reproduce later and a commit that might or might not help or be necessary; until deciding to include that enough time passed that redoing the beta3 tag might leave some people with the old one, so we made a new one.

tagging is what? mark it for release and that can't change?

Basically, yes. A static name for one commit. You can make that point to another commit, but if someone already got the old one, it won't automatically update. See also "On Re-tagging" here: http://schacon.github.com/git/git-tag.html

It can't do that (unless you didn't follow all of the recommended safety instructions exactly).

What about:

"This is a beta release. If you use it we will rob your dog and sell it back to you. We know where you live. That is all."
"Dedicated to discovering Warzone artefacts, and sharing them freely for the benefit of the community."

I was thinking so, but someone reported that such thing happened, I couldn't believe it, but well, strange things happen. ;-)

well, you could just tell the cry babies that the next release will be an alpha instead of a beta. Then we shall see if they cry over the next beta or not :twisted:
