Beta (Release) – An IT term to describe the second pre-production release of a piece of software. Usually software will have an alpha release, then the beta will include documentation added to the alpha, at which point the product is in final QA, then user testing, then release as a piece of production software. NOTE: Crypto projects, in particular DeFi, often skip all of the above and are released with no testing or documentation. See Ape In and Andre Cronje
