This one is huge. Very, very cool guys!

I was just about to post a request for fixing the debugger. Thank you, thank you. This one was irritating.

It might be helpful to describe what to do if you want to have both installations going. (Production and 2.0 beta) Is it a simple as just installing the 2.0 version in a different folder? Also note that you agreed it was a good idea to put the version number in or near the download link - but this hasn't happened yet.

That's enough. Isn't the instruction I place there clear enough about that?
It mentions: "Make a backup of your current Servoy installation directory if you plan to upgrade or perform a clean installation into a new directory. "

What should we change to make it clearer?

As far as I know that happened. I've just looked and for production it mentions the version. For betas the version is only mentioned in the forum.

Maybe clean my glasses automatically? Convince me to slow down my reading?
You're right, the information was there but I seemed to have tuned it out immediately after reading about the backup. However, if you started the sentence "Either make a backup ..." that probably woud have worked for me.
