Beta Software

What is Beta Software?

A "Beta" tag is given to a version of a software program or application that is still in development, but that is available to the public for testing and feedback.

Beta software is typically considered to be feature-complete and reasonably stable, but may still contain bugs or other issues that need to be addressed before the final version is released.

Developers release beta software to get feedback from users and to identify and fix any remaining issues before the final version is released.

Beta software can be a useful way for users to try out new features and functionality before they are officially released, but it may also be less stable or reliable than the final version.

Here at MIDAS, we run a Beta Program where we invite people to test pre-release "beta" versions of our room scheduling software before public release.
