Moving to the Invitation-Beta Phase

Feedback from closed-trial users has uncovered a few 'rough edges' but in my opinion nothing to discourage moving onto the next phase, invitation-beta, which would be open to volunteers signing up through a Help Assistant link.
For that phase, personally I would like version 0.2-beta installed because it adds import/export of address book contacts.
What do others think?

Re: Moving to the Invitation-Beta Phase

Please can you say what the difference is with the version 0.2 beta (other than the import/export of addresses)?
Have some of the niggles been dealt with in this one?
A few (important) things that need to be addressed (IMO) before moving on to open invitation are:
Single click to open messages
Text wrap problem
Handling of attachments
Font style settings/preferences (unable to set permanently)
Identity list - places them in alphabetical order instead of default at the top
Hope that I am not being too pedantic at this stage!

Re: Moving to the Invitation-Beta Phase

The statement of content from here is shown in the attachment.
I'm not sure whether any of the annoyances mentioned have been changed but I don't feel they would make moving to the next phase undesirable. Bear in mind it is a third-party application, not one under PN's direct control.

Re: Moving to the Invitation-Beta Phase

What is - complete TinyMCE integration?
Actually what is - TinyMCE?
or even big MCE?
You should include a warning about readability...

Re: Moving to the Invitation-Beta Phase

Apparently it's a Javascript WYSIWYG Editor and something to do with converting HTML text fields (I think).
I only found out by looking at the website so I've learned something new although can't imagine that it will be of much use to me!
Here is the definition from the website:
TinyMCE - Javascript WYSIWYG Editor
TinyMCE is a platform independent web based Javascript HTML WYSIWYG editor control released as Open Source under LGPL by Moxiecode Systems AB. It has the ability to convert HTML TEXTAREA fields or other HTML elements to editor instances. TinyMCE is very easy to integrate into other Content Management Systems.

Yes - just looked properly - apparently I could install a Ubuntu package of the same name  Crazy Crazy

Yep, it's basically this. I didn't know that until last week either despite having seen it all over the place.
