SourceTree beta program is here – become a trusted tester

By on March 25, 2016

We’re thrilled to launch a new beta release process for our upcoming SourceTree releases. This will give you an opportunity to engage directly with the SourceTree team and provide feedback on future updates. If you’re interested in becoming a trusted tester and would like to get early releases from SourceTree, join this google group. We’re still hammering out the program’s last few details, and will share updates here soon.

We look forward to working with you. Thank you for your support!

    How about focusing on internal testing first rather than outsourcing it?

    In a previous release a developer forgot to include a tree/ui library in the release causing many screens to fail in the public release.

    Had someone actually tested it (this would have been picked up within a few seconds) that release would have been re-released before it went out to the public.

    This goes to show that internal testing procedures are not up to scratch, which should be addressed before creating a public testing program.

      Thanks for your feedback. We’re improving all aspects of testing: internally and externally. I will elaborate more on a following blog post.

    Google Groups? Really? The slowest possible solution? No, thanks…

      Thanks for your feedback. Google Groups allows us to communicate with a large number of testers and manage multiple threads. I am open to any other suggestions if you know of something better.

      Google Groups works pretty well for me. I would have preferred a Google+ Community, which is far better, but Google Groups works well enough.

    Hello ; When I go to “Sign up today”, I receive this message from Google Groups : You do not have permission to access this content. (#418)
    Do I need to register elsewhere before ?

            OK it was there. Google Mail that considers Google Groups as spam, now that’s weird. Thanks
