Where is the "Beta" mention ?


Recommended Posts

Hi,

Running MB Premium 4.1.1.71 - CU 1.0.955 which is a beta version but there is no mention of it in the main title bar (see screenshot) ...

Yeah It would be nice to have Beta in the top, to notice about that you use Beta.

Right now you can only check by version and CU from the sticked threads. And also in General inside MB.

It should be listed under the About tab along with all the other detailed build info, at least in my opinion.

That would be the best spot for it IMO

I can see many sides of the coin. Reasons for and reasons against where to put it.

As a support person and asking for a screenshot I don't have to have the user specifically show me a certain tab of the program or send me a log. With it in the Title I can see it in every screenshot and immediately know and others as well that it's a beta or not

I guess this will be like the robot in the city sky background in the start screen.

I don't know much about support, but doesn't it add in the log that the user use beta? I mean instead of looking for version and cu?

Nope, you have to either know or look up the version

But with it in the Title you don't need a log. Even a user with little computer experience can tell you if they see the word Beta in the Title

And it was the case in the past; the mention "Beta" was present just after"Premium" in the title bar (that's why I included the screenshot in my first post).

If I remember well it was still present in the beta versions 4.0 and got lost with the beta versions 4.1 .....

It would be convenient if it showed in the logs as beta somewhere.  Even if it's just an entry written to/read from a value in the registry.

Agreed. I think having it show in the Title, as well as in Protection, Scan, and MBST logs would be ideal.
