I think if you made it more visible e.g. on the website you would get a 
lot more people to test it - like previously there was a beta section in 
the menu and maybe there should be an alpha section too. Anyway, I've 
upgraded from 1.2b7 to 1.3a1 and here are my first observations.

Wireless status does not work as expected. I checked with no wireless 
clients connected and there was a long list with a lot of mac addresses 
with only zeroes (00:00:00:00:00). After that I connected a wireless 
client and then the list was empty. However connectivity was working 
fine. I use an Atheros 5212 chipset miniPCI card on a net4511.

In dmesg the last lines state:
pid 193 (wicontrol), uid 0: exited on signal 11 (core dumped)
pid 443 (wicontrol), uid 0: exited on signal 11 (core dumped)
ath0: device timeout

Captive portal is not backward compatible with the local user manager in 
1.2b7. At least the list of users were empty and I had to create them again.
