Like I said they gave at least 2 testers an update. As for a general update they could release info like: "When ready we have determined to have X test units available to ship out to testers. It has been a difficult process, but we have selected the following backers to help test out the units. Here is a list of the community members selected. We appreciate all whom were enthusiastic in being a tester & thank you for your continued support!"
If anything they should have with Sebastian & your update on test units should have posted an update here in the forums.
Myself? I am relaxed but equally disappointed in this disconnect in communication; the community has matured alot since the early days of "flying off the handle" with updates that seemed unfavourable.
