Not trying to whine - but I fight the same battles. I work for a big,
conservative company. Telling people it's a 'beta' release - regardless of
what that means - makes it much more difficult to get things approved.

Probably a greater percentage of your users than you realize are still
using 1.02 for the sole reason that 1.1 is still called 'beta'. Worse,
probably a lot of projects have started off that had to use 1.02 because it
was the 'stable release' - and then the development teams struggled. I saw
one project dump struts because they had trouble getting it to do what they
wanted (they were forced to use 1.02).
