Release a pre-release... i don't like the grammar.
more like, pre-release a beta of the release
GraphicsPack project: 90%
IconXT project: 100% (version final is ready)

Sorry asiekierka, but "release a pre-release" is in my opinion correct grammar.

"pre-release a beta of the release" would be incorrect, since pre-release and beta are two different things on the same subject.

I also prefer "release a pre-release of Rocks'n'Diamonds."

I think that it is redundant and confusing to say "pre-release a beta of the release of Rocks'n'Diamonds."

To "pre-release Rocks'n'Diamonds" would probably be OK as well.

(and I'm from the U.S. of A!)
