A Beta doesn't mean we can only change things inside the code. I think 
all these "Stop it" Mails get a bit out of hand. ;-)

I am sorry for that, but I am sure people will appreciate having a 
correct book in the end. :)

But: What If you would be a documenter for Max or Maya? You could only 
start documenting when the final product is already out, here you can 
start much earlier and adapt it on the way, so you can get a book out 
asap after the final release. Or am I wrong?

I think Zanqdo explained the reasoning well. :)

I don't want to sound offensive, on the contrary, but a beta is a beta. 
It's not an RC yet. ;-)
Changes happen and will happen. And it was decided on the sunday meeting 
to commit that as well.
