After much delay and a lot of work, the first private beta has been released and emails have been sent out testers. Because it's an early version yet, it's still a little rough, but I'll be working on fixes and polish over the course of the coming weeks.
If you haven't signed up to be a tester, there may be more opportunities with future releases, but for now tester sign up is closed. However, you'll still be getting weekly updates on development with periodic teasers, screenshots, and videos.
