I think Bill's being modest. :)

The v2.9 cycle has been perhaps the most thorough, well organized, and 
well executed in the history of the product.

But he's right:  the more people pounding on it, the better we can 
ensure the overall quality of the product.  Each of you is doing 
something a bit different from anyone else, and with a product as 
flexible as Rev we need that broad coverage to make sure every critical 
bug is taken care of before release.

Your help testing this version will make the software you deliver with 
Rev better.  For a modest effort now in this testing cycle, you have the 
opportunity to lower your own tech support costs by finding issues and 
having them addressed now, before release.

They've made it about as easy as possible to participate.  Please join 
in the effort to make this the best Rev release ever.
