Exclamation X-Cart Early Adopters program

Actually, it's not a real "program", but an opportunity for developers and users to test drive new versions of X-Cart 5 before the versions become available for other X-Cart users.

Starting with the next version (5.2.4) we will roll out updates in two waves:
1. Once we make an official release announcement, the new version becomes available for "early adopters" only.
2. A few days later (depending on results of the first wave) we open the update to the rest of the X-Cart community.

There will be one more wave ("zero" wave) used for testing purposes before the official announcement. But most of you will never notice it (at least we think so ).

[ ! ] If you want to be in the first wave for the next 5.2.4 version, please reply into this forum thread.
Do NOT post your license keys there! Just write something like "I'm in" and we will add you to "early adopters".

The 5.2.4 version will introduce a new setting that will allow you to make this decision on a per-store level.

Count me in.

But "few days later" to release for everyone is not enough time. If you send me the testing version on Friday and I have time to install it on following Tuesday when will I be able to do some testing, check for errors or weird behavior, etc.
Few days is not enough time for anyone to test anything. Unless "few days" for you means at least a week better 2...

I can be on board, but I agree Steve. Always you gave us a version with 1 - 2 weeks before releasing. This time only allows to install and do basic things.

Let's watch to other side, Microsoft. I didn't like Windows 8, but 8.1 is pretty well, comparing with Windows 7, less memory usage. What did Microsoft to attack people? They involve them into Windows 10 creation. Actually the company said they got over 1 million ideas, and they can deal with all. Imagine the volume of this work. I guess enrolling people for doing something is a win-win story.
X-Cart Next: Business 5.2 (learning and testing)
X-Cart Classic: Gold and Gold Plus 4.7
Lots of Modules and Customizations
OS in use: Red Hat Enterprise, Fedora, CentOS, Debian, Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Kali Linux
Ideas for Server configuration (basicaly): Nginx/Pound (reverse proxy), Apache/Nginx (webserver), Squid/Varnish (cache server), HHVM or (PHP-FPM + PHP 5.6 + opcache), MariaDB/Percona MySQL Server, Redis (storing sessions)

You can catch my ideas here:
