It seems strange to have that kind of dot version for alpha to beta (though
it seems stranger to release an alpha...). I guess this is similar to how
apple releases it's OS now :)

Curious, why do you make the user download and decompress to get to:

*****************************  W A R N I N G

  All user accessible points in this software package are to be considered
  "alpha". This means that the developer team is not investing _any_ effort
  in providing back compatibility between alpha releases.

  This software will continue to be released as "alpha" until both code,
  schemas and APIs will be considered stable.

  Until then, there will be no warranty that newer versions will maintain
  compatibility even in the most simple cases.

  On the other hand, once "beta" status is reached, back incompatible
  will be made only if absolutely necessary to reach "final" status.

  The Cocoon development team understands the importance of reliable
  software as well as the importance of protecting user investiments by the
  creation of a solid development platform that doesn't change.

  On the other hand, being the Cocoon project a pioneer in many fields and
  being most of the technologies used at a "working draft" phase only, this
  cannot be guaranteed before a final status is reached for the software.

  Until then, no effort will be provided to guarantee back compatibility.

  You have been warned.

*****************************  W A R N I N G

I would think this might be something for the home page or at least
available at the same level as the distribution so it can be read before
