I'd be happy to help test new features but at this point am not able to run
my own test environment.

Could the dev server be updated with the new release at the functionality
freeze? I'd be happy to test on that.  It would also be really useful for
Ali and I to create screencasts and promotional text about new features if
we could see it in advance.
