At the very least, call it beta if it's out for general use/testing. Perhaps the latest iteration of 2.2.7 is in fact that, just misnamed.
I know hobbyists who would not know what alpha and beta means.
They would think its a cool code name like Omega-force
It was indeed a naming error. We forgot to remove the tag when we pushed the hex. We'll review it all again and push it through the autotest suite again and then push it back out with the right name.
