Known issues

The Import and Restore Preview tables do not show properly in Internet Explorer 6. FIXED

Netscape also has visualization issues when using the Firefox rendering engine. The Internet Explorer rendering engine (oddly enough) appears to work just fine.

We are still testing Safari – Mac users, speak up!

How long until the final release?

We expect the Public Preview to last a week. This may change if any issues arise that need to be addressed. Once the preview is over, and Beta 4 is officially in place, your account will automatically be updated to the new format the first time you sign in.

NOTE: If you create an account in the Preview database that you would like to make permanent – let us know and we’ll post instructions on how to do so.

    Hi,
    Thanks for the update and for “showing” us the Beta. Can not wait to final release. New features are interesting and really useful, mainly tagging. Also backups, import export and welcome message are adding to passpack huge possibilities. Thanks a lot.

    @ Jordi
    I can’t wait for the final release either! [smile] We’ve got a tight schedule ahead of us to live up to that “We expect the Public Preview to last a week.” I’m glad you like the new additions.

    Cheers to you,
    Tara

    @freedom
    Salve. La necessità di creare un nuovo account è solo temporanea durante la preview. Non appena il Beta 4 sarà ufficiale (previsto per lunedì) il tuo account verrà aggiornato alla nuova versione automaticamente alla prima login.

    TRANSLATION:
    My response to freedom’s question, “why do I have to create a new account?”… The creation of a new account is only for the preview period. Once the Beta 4 release (planned for Monday) is officially in place, your account will be automatically updated the first time you sign in.
