All Enterprise licensees get access to DP builds automatically, but
since you're more enthused about testing the new font handling than
anyone else around I would suggest you drop a note to support at runrev.com
to see if you can get access to the DPs on this round to help out.
No rush at the moment though: so far all I've seen are screen shots of
the in-progress builds as the team works toward the DP. Not sure when
the next DP will be posted, but thus far none have had the new font
handling, so it's not like you've been missing out while you were
traveling. Hopefully the next DP will up soon....
