Beta Testing Period Over?

I am receiving the following message when I try to download anything:

"Sorry, the beta testing period for MetaProducts Download Express 1.5 beta 1 is over.
Please refer to http://www.metaproducts.com/de.asp for the new version."

But there is no newer version. I am currently using Download Express Version 1.5.206 Beta 1.

Why can`t I just keep using the version that works for me? And there isn`t even a new version listed. What do I do?

I guess i will revert back to Download Express Version 1.4 Build 193 for now, but please answer my question when you can.

Same for me :-(

I suppose it`s back to the old version.

The new version was uploaded to the server at 09/17/2003.
We have some problems with the version information update, sorry.

What is the purpose of having the beta version expire?

Dear Boz,

Thank you for writing us.
Beta versions may contain untested bugs. Time limited beta versions allow to stop the circulation of test versions in Internet.

Sincerely,
Alexander.
