Quick question.

I am using 4.0b9pre (and very happy with it). Do you know if the upgrades/changes included in the 4.0b8 are also included in the 4.0b9pre nightly updates?

Thanks

Yes, all upgrades and fixes are included in the nightly builds but these are more unstable than the beta

Thanks for such prompt replay yowanvista. Very useful.
Since 4.0.b9pre has been very stable for me so far, I will continue to enjoy it.

I installed beta 8 earlier today (up from beta 7) and am happy to say it didn't break any extensions. Can't say I notice any difference - very stable. Won't be surprised if it goes gold very soon.
