What is Pico Labs?
Pico Labs is a showcase of our latest software releases. These are beta releases that we are still fine–tuning. They are only available to existing users who want to upgrade their Pico products.
What is a ‘beta release’ and should I use it?
Everything available from Pico Labs has been thoroughly tested by us, however it is not possible for us to test the software under all conditions. By giving you the option of using the beta release we are often able to uncover problems that we were unable to discover during our in–house testing. If you choose to install and use the beta software you should expect to run into bugs. These bugs may range in severity from minor features that don’t work to problems that may cause your PC to crash. Before choosing to use a beta release you should decide whether the benefit of the new features in a beta release outweighs the risk of program instability.
Tell us what you think
We would like to hear from you if you experience any problems using our beta releases or if you have any suggestions for improvements.
