Alpha testing of Mapraider 2.0 began a couple of weeks ago and has been progressing along at a steady pace. As I put the finishing touches on the site's functionality and design, longtime Mapraider member and administrator StoneViper has been helping out by pouring through the site and finding any obvious holes before we begin our initial beta testing.
Right now I'm planning on breaking the upcoming beta test period into two parts: an initial, short private testing period followed by a public beta test. The public beta test will be open to all and somewhat of a soft-launch prior to the official launch. If you're interested in participating in the private test, please contact me and let me know.
Prior to the public beta test I hope to have some time to start posting details of the new site here on the blog. I'm really looking forward to actually sharing the site after all these years of working on it.
