I think it's kind of crazy for them to want even LESS pre-release feedback on their ideas, considering the well-justified hatred which Unity has received.

I guess on the other hand, if they're not going to take our feedback seriously anyway, why bother with extensive alpha/beta programs?

They have decided to not release alpha anymore since people where not upgrading from alpha n to alpha n+1 soon enough to keep up with the development pace.

So they have switched to somewhat rolling release mode with bimonthly snapshot until the release of the beta version roughly a month before the final.
