If I remember correctly the betas were about one month closed beta and then another month open beta.

How long have beta periods typically lasted in the past? Anyone got any data?

No specific reason why I'm asking.
:cool:
sounds like you know something? :)
Not really, just playing games in my mind right now.. simulating the ifs and thens ...

You know what's funny - some things are only considered leaks once they're deleted. The deletion is the confirmation.

Yet a deletion would leave a hypothetical bitter taste, considering a forum - not run by the developer of a product - should be independent, don't you think?

Especially if there were no NDAs violated, which would be a reasonable cause for deletion.

If any of that would ever happen, Reason 11 is already in beta.

I really hope for such an incident.

Edit: And if such an incident would happen, I wish there was someone who told the others about it. Someone with the confidence of knowing that at least 5 people witnessed this incident, too.

Edit2: Because I'm interested in how many people I can reach with my hypothetical thoughts, this post needs a counter:

100% YES.
And it's not the first time I have thought it about this forum.


So, mid-October then....

Looking all the way back to version 4, we can actually see a pattern:

10 10/25/2017
9 6/21/2016
8 9/30/2014
7 4/30/2013
6 9/30/2011
5 8/25/2010
4 9/26/2007

Almost half of the releases over the past 12 years are in the last week of September. One is a month earlier, and another is a month later. That leaves only three versions that don’t fall within the August to October timeframe, and none that aren’t in or close to the last week of the month. So given that we’re a little past when we might expect a new version, that we’re also heading into Reason’s traditional release season, and that announcements tend to come about a month before release, which tends to be near the end of a month...

I think this means we’ll see an announcement the last week in August with Reason 11 hitting retail the last week of September. If it’s Tuesdays, that would be 8/27 and 9/24 respectively.

I think I'm going to be right, or REALLY close!

Great interpretation and totally makes sense. It would be just great if it's the case! :thumbs_up:
