And of course, you can leave the beta program at any time by clicking again on the Beta program switch on the Manage Beta Features page.

How to Provide Feedback?

Is something broken? Are there some flaws in a workflow? Do you have some improvements in mind? Let us know! You just need to open an issue on GitHub. Describe the problem and explain how to reproduce it. The more details you add, the better: screenshots, the URL of the page, etc. Do not forget to mention that you have joined the beta program.

Before opening an issue, it is a good idea to check the issues list to avoid reporting a problem, which someone else has already reported. In case you have more information about an already opened issue, please add a comment with your findings.
