Should this read that beta 6 has been released? : "A public beta of FM3 firmware 1.04 beta 6 has been released "

PS. I agree with USMC_Trev above! Fractal is great!

Installing beta FM3 edit.....so auto update will not work from current version to beta correct ?
On a Mac, just install the .dmg? When the new Non beta FM3 version update arrives...can you auto update from beta?

Chris, installing the beta does not create 2 instances of FM3 edit correct? Overwrites current ?
