With all the best will in the world, you are asking an impossibility. Even if the software authors were to have it ready for beta testing today, I could not foresee a release before about March and that assumes the beta testers find little in the way of bugs.

Beta testers have been used since the first version released, these beta testers will have been used for all the new versions and any updates.

These same beta testers are the ones who are prepared to spend hours every day trying to solve other peoples problems for free... I don't see why you are surprised that beta testers are here..

Got nobody I'm afraid.

Because the beta testers are a team. The team may lose a member or two or gain a member or two between versions, but the core remains reasonably constant. I've been a beta tester for MSP and WS for a number of years. If WS3 were to be beta tested, I would expect that I would remain on the team.

I thought this news story -- fairly recent -- was interesting:

InterVideo Ulead Presents Next-generation HD DVD Authoring Suite at HD DVD Professionals Workshop for Microsoft Windows Media

The Suite includes InterVideo WinDVD® for HD DVD-quality playback, Ulead DVD MovieFactory® Studio Pro Edition for authoring and a professional Muxer for creating HD DVD compatible titles.

By the way, the story probably should have written "HDi" as "iHD."

iHD:

And there's been an interesting sideline battle between "iHD" and "BD-J":
iHD is an XML-based interactivity specification currently used by HD DVD. It is not "Microsoft's iHD," but rather a specification developed jointly by Microsoft, Disney, and the DVD Forum. For the moment, Blu-ray uses an alternative specification, the Java-based BD-J. The exact issues of debate between the camps supporting each specification isn't entirely clear. For instance, iHD supporters argue that iHD integration into Windows means that iHD will be cheaper to license than BD-J, and will afford for greater integration with the dominant home operating system (i.e., Windows). BD-J members believe that the licensing will soon be a moot issue once players are sold en masse, and while iHD is a specification that can be supported on any platform, they feel as though a Java-based solution is more universal and cross-platform friendly.

Not necessarily. A recent email conversation between myself and one of the Ulead Software Developers suggests the change of management to Corel appears more promising (to him) than the previous change to Intervideo.

In reading the new issue of Videomaker mag. I see lists of DVD authoring softwares. In the list under Ulead is DVD Workshop 3.

Misprint or slip of the lip? :)

The suggestion given by members of the Ulead staff in other forums is that development of the DVD Workshop product is "on hold."

When you couple that information with the news that Ulead is about to offer a Studio Pro Edition of DVD MovieFactory, you do get the feeling that the focus is now on DVD MovieFactory.

According to this article on the EmediaLive.Com Web site, the Studio Pro Edition of Ulead DVD MovieFactory was -- in October -- expected to be released this quarter.
InterVideo Ulead will be releasing the DVD MovieFactory Studio Pro Edition in the fourth quarter of 2006.

I haven't been a Ulead consultant since 2004 so I don't know anything for certain anymore and I've had absolutely no communication with Ulead staffers in recent weeks.

The lack of a new product to date, however, suggests maybe a 2007 release instead.

In a recent communication between myself and a Ulead Employee
I am not allowed to say much but I can say that I am more optimistic this time than the first merger.

Certainly a typo!

I'm very cautiously optimistic but not for the near future.
