Here we go. PS3-Sense brings word that Home beta invites have been sent out to Qore subscribers.

The piece also says that, as expected, version 1.0 of the app’s client has been put live on the beta servers.

As reported earlier this week, Sony will now bring large amounts of people into the beta in two waves, followed, hopefully, by the open beta.

Find the Qore invite mail after the link.

    What I don’t understand is the difference between “open public beta” and “official public release”?
    And why do they still call it “beta” when the release number (v1.0) suggests otherwise?

    Was the end of the source email duplicated like it is in the post?

    “How to download How to download” etc etc etc etc

    @Quiiick
    Version numbers have very little bearing on things and when a product is ready to ship. It has been an unfounded expectation that 1.0 means release version. If a product is in RC or beta seems to be the only way to tell these days. Many developers are merely referring to build numbers these days. So you can have version 1.0 build 86789090 and it’s still version 1.0.

    In other words, versioning doesn’t necessarily mean what you think it does.

    There used to is a sharp distinction between alpha, beta and RC.

    If “Home” is still in beta the version number should reflect this and be below 1.0 (like 0.9.8) or at least have an extension like 1.0b or 1.0beta1.
