I just added the "Developer Snapshot" graphics for the Start Center. [1]
My Windows test builds look good so far.

BUT:
Only recently I found out that on Windows file associations are not set
for a Developer Build (works for a Beta).
That means that you cannot open a .odt or .doc file by double clicking.
I am pretty sure this is Windows only (probably Windows installer) but
this must be fixed before we do anything official.

Maybe you can do personal dev builds for Linux and macOS to see if
everything works there?

Regards,
