Well, not this table no.
However, last night I had contact with the staff from eTecnologia.
I told them to consider giving the beta away for free.
I am working on a whitepaper that now is more getting towards the size of a book.

Mind you, the original version was about 80 pages, I now split the chapters, mostly for maintenance reasons.
The last few days I worked on a chapter concerning templates and that alone is now 24 pages long.

I am now writing on how to create websites with the NetCompiler and that chapter is already 10 pages without touching the very core yet on how to do things.

Giving this beta away, along with my (free) book will give people a good starting point.
It also draws maximum attention to the product.
Making chances bigger that there will be a market for this product, and developers working with it, later on. It can also allow developers, working in other tools like C#, F#, VB etc. . . to get to know the product.

Most likely this will not be before the end of september.
They (eTecnologia) are currently working on some hot stuff like the generalized database, and when that is available there is something real to show.
