Let your McAfee Account manager know your willingness. He will send you nice PDF with details where to send requests for Beta participation.

Sorry, the beta ended a week or so ago.

On another note, you have to be a customer with a valid support contract to participate in the beta programs.

Point noted.

Way forward: (1) Do you have any idea of the release date for the 6.1

                    (2) I am really itching for this release, do you have any insight into the kind of NEW features we should be expecting and it's stability across most if not all hardware platform.

                    (3) Is it gonna knock out PGP DESKTOP..................*winks*

I was just told that the beta for this was scrapped due to scalability issues.  So I wonder what theat means for 6.1, back to the drawing board?

There was a Beta of 6.1 - went on for months, but also finished a while ago. 6.1 is in the closing phases of internal testing now, and 6.0 Patch 2 was RTS last Friday.

You just missed the 6.1 Beta, that's all.

I don't think that was the case, ePO is SQL based, there should be no "scalability" issues. Beta's tend to live short lives and there is a lull period before RTS and RTW occurs. That period might be longer if they discovered lots of items to work on.
