Beta Versions

(Redirected from Beta versions)

The HylaFAX development team often asks other developers and interested HylaFAX users to test upcoming software releases. As these are beta versions of software they may contain more bugs than usual, and should probably not be used on production servers if your job depends on the performance of that server!

Reporting Bugs

The HylaFAX Bugzilla is located at Please file a bug report there if you can. If you prefer to send a message to the Mailing Lists to discuss the problem, we encourage you to subscribe to and post it there. The hylafax-users mailing list will also reach many of the right people, and is the next best thing if subscribing to -devel and filing a bug report seem like too much trouble. Bottom line - we want your bugs!!
