The feedback we have received so far on the beta 1 for Worldspace FireEyes has been great. I have received comments ranging from "Very impressive!!" and "This is very easy to use, the reading order analysis is great and I was able to immediately determine the reason for the issue" to "This finds things that no other tool can find."
Like all software however, we also received some feedback that was not so good - specifically we discovered some incompatibilities with the WAVE toolbar. Now some would say that we did this on purpose (and I wish we were that sly) because the first beta stopped WAVE from appearing in the toolbar and stopped it from working altogether - that is however not the case. So yesterday we released Worldspace FireEyes beta 2 which has a bunch of fixes including one that makes it compatible with all the other toolbars out there.
The next beta of Worldspace FireEyes will include some major new features and we'd like your input as to which features to include. Please participate in the beta 3 features poll.
