I report this quote from gearslutz too:
there was an issue with mac osx installers. It was solved. Max osx users will be contacted. The product anyway is not officially out yet, it was not released officially.
The product was announced officially for "august" and in august it will be released.
Just to be clear, the product is in presale. During the presale period we upload sometimes a first installer for impatient users and we do not announce - we receive many requests about doing it anyway.
When a product is released we announce it on facebook, on the newsletter, the topic is moved in a proper acqua section in the forum, we close the presale, we change even the home page. Nothing of that happened.

Fabio uploaded the product but he was waiting for a check from betatesters.
Betatesters replied but it was too late. If you really want to be sure the product is ok you should wait for the official release. First upload is also impatient users who in general accept the situation if the product is not working. It is what we call "prerelease", which is an unofficial release during the presale period and it is not announced at all - sometimes even in the forum.
An other thing: the product will feature the same sound and issues like the trial version. If there are things which are faulty even in trial version they will be solved with a lower priority. For us a product is good if it meets at least the expectations created in the trial version. Anyway we improved the commercial release a bit, for example francesco solved a +6dB dropout during the lat/vert switch. I hope the product will be release before 10 august, otherwise we'll release after 17.
