When will this be a "release" and not a beta? or does it matter?

It doesn't matter - a beta eventually becomes a release once it's been tested and used enough. Using the beta helps us move it quicker to release.

Forgive me if this is a simple question but is there a way to select pallet colors? The dark colors and grays are very hard on my eyes. 
Thanks

Soon in the next few days. Have a working beta that’s in process. The plan of the theming is to let users select the color theme branded to your product. Thanks for holding on there till it’s ready:)

Ya, I can't read the gray and dark colors either. Looks cool at first glance but after working with it a little while I have to put on my stronger reading glasses and squint. 

Other then being stuck on this color combo (for now) I like the new look. I'm really looking forward to being able to change the color theme.
