Discussion of beta software is off-topic per the FAQ. – Philip Regan Oct 5 '11 at 12:28
This should be re-opened since it is out now, and i am wondering the same thing. – aceinthehole Oct 13 '11 at 15:16
@aceinthehole: We do not re-open previously closed questions about what was once pre-release software since it can change upon release, and the question may actually resolve itself due to the release. If this question is still an issue for the user, they will need to post a new question. – Philip Regan Oct 13 '11 at 17:03
