There could always be space for a startup window in beta releases, with
a checkbox like "Don't bug me again". It could contain release notes for
betas. So people could know what to expect to be broken/changed, and a
glimpse of the roadmap.

Of course, these annoying startup windows should die before a stable
release: we're not on Windows. They're just for users wanting to run on
the bleeding edge, so to prevent a flood of "me-too" filed bugs.

Just an idea, though. Feel free to drop it or make it better :-).
