Turbo Lister beta program
The Turbo Lister beta program encourages experienced eBay users to try new features, make comments, and report problems with the pre-release ("beta") desktop application software. A software product is in its "beta" stage of development when it is ready to be released to the public for further testing, but is not yet ready for commercial release. After the beta period, eBay distributes the finished product to all users. Through this program, users can contribute their ideas and experiences during the final stages of each release. Once the user feedback demonstrates that the new software is stable, eBay will release official versions to the entire community.
The importance of the Turbo Lister beta program
The Turbo Lister beta program is valuable because "real world" users (you) may find bugs that are difficult or impossible to locate in a development environment. Beta testing creates a way for the community to contribute directly to Turbo Lister improvements, and help eBay develop software that is responsive to user needs.
Is the Turbo Lister beta program for you?
Everyone is welcome to join the beta program, but experienced users will benefit most from using Turbo Lister beta software. Many of you have told us that you enjoy trying out the latest features as soon as they are available. We welcome your participation. Please keep in mind that the beta versions aren't free of bugs, nor are they fully supported.
Join the beta program
You can join the Turbo Lister beta program from within the Turbo Lister application.
To join the beta program:
Select "Options…" from the Turbo Lister "Tools" menu.
Select "Advanced Options"
Click the "Join Beta Program" button.
When necessary, eBay publishes updated beta software. The software updates resolve bugs reported by beta program users. Once you've joined the beta program, when Turbo Lister automatically looks for updates it will tell you if new beta versions are available. If you are using a beta version it will say "Turbo Lister (beta version)" in the application title bar.
Beta users can exchange ideas with other users on this discussion board on eBay.com.
