We post releases early for users in our irc channel (#adium on irc.freenode.net) so they can discover any problems before everyone else gets ahold of the release.

All issues with a yet-unreleased version of Adium should be reported in #adium where the download link was distributed, so we can decide whether the issue is large enough to warrant posting an update.

If you've managed to find the release early (or received the link from someone else), please visit #adium and discuss the issue with us directly. Please do not report issues to the forum, since we're likely not to see them. Please do not distribute the download link outside of #adium until we've officially released.
