Blue2u-- At some point Kobo staff might decide to release the files in another way, but I sure had to giggle to read this as the first comment.
I can't speak for the other beta testers, but it sure has been exciting working on this beta. I was especially impressed with the lengths Kobo went to in order to simplify the home screen and isolate the buying experience from the reading experience. No carousels to hide or nothin'.
Just wait until you play with the font tuning! And the bookshelves!
