Three ways to see the cutting-edge from Scyld:

	* Come work for Scyld!

	* Purchase a support subscription from Scyld or demand
	  Scyld from your vendor/system integrator.

	* Wait! :)

As a member of the product team, I feel the preview release has
pretty good quality for a beta and we have received a lot of valuable
feedback from it -- and few showstoppers.

We're working hard on a couple of things with respect to the preview ;
preparing the next release of our software and springing a new operating
model for cluster computing on the world (as embodied in the preview).

This means that for right now we have to focus on exposing the preview
release to the widest possible audience. Given finite resources, we
can't also maintain a 'rawhide' or 'rough cuts' program at this time.
