Nothing against you personally, but if this caught you by surprise
yesterday you have been asleep at the switch.

That said, why bother downloading a beta when the release is going to be
out very shortly?  If you haven't been keeping up with the beta
downloading it now won't do you much good because anything you want to
complain about won't be fixed at least until the next release.
