Have you ever considered being a beta tester? You’ll get early access to the latest new features, and you can test if your project is compatible with the new beta.
Thanks to everyone who helped us introduce the next generation of Unity by being part of the 2017.2 Beta Program. We’re now ready to invite you to help test the 2017.3 Beta version.
Participating in the Unity Beta Program will help our engineers and QA team ensure that the next stable version of Unity works for your project, your team, and your goals. It will give us insight into how you use new features in your projects, where you run into issues, and how we can help resolve them.
If you’re new to the Beta program and aren’t sure where to start, just follow the four steps below. (If you’ve already downloaded the new beta version, just skip to Step 3.)
If you experience issues with the beta, we encourage you to file a bug report using the Unity Bug Reporter accessible through the Help menu in the editor, and to post in the Beta Forums.
The Unity beta forum is a great community resource where you can see what other people have reported, find workarounds, and keep up to date with fixes. It’s also a good way to get in touch with someone at Unity if you have additional questions or information.
Another great resource is the Public Issue Tracker, where you can vote and comment on bugs reported by other users. This helps our team prioritize which bugs to tackle first.
