Works fine, but not perfect
By , for WP 3.5.2

When set to retrieve nightly builds you never know if there is an updated version. It always says it is, but it isn't.

No way to get 3.6-RC when trunk is 3.7-alpha.

Besides this, excellent.

Works great!

This plugin really helps me in testing my own plugins with the latest WordPress versions.

Stays at alpha, misses update to Beta
By ,

The plugin keeps my installation on 3.5.2-alpha and does NOT update to 3.6.2-beta. I can't see any reason to stay on an alpha release when there is a beta release available, especially since the plugin is even named "beta".
Thus, the plugin does not meet its goal to keep your installation at the bleeding edge.

Works as it should

Very simple and works just like it should.

skips official release
By , for WP 3.4.2

skipped the official release at the end of the beta cycle, and upgraded straight to the 3.6 alpha version.
If you use this plugin be very careful not to miss a release announcement!

I didn't want an alpha release tester plugin, this doesn't warn that it is, and it seems there's no support when it does something it shouldn't.

I'd give it zero stars if I could.
