As for allowing the beta to open so the user can update that might cause a few issue problems. One being that people 'Won't' do the update even if forced. I'm sure there are those amongst us who try to circumvent what they feel is their desire to keep a then outdated program from correcting known problems as with not willing to discover new problems.

We increased the expiry time of the betas, and leave around two weeks for everyone to update to the latest beta. This should do the job until the final release.

I own a Scrivener 1 license for Windows and Mac, and I am definitely going to buy a Scrivener 2 license for Windows when it becomes available.
Please allow me to purchase a license already so that I no longer have to go to the website and manually download the update file. I know what I'd be buying. It would be an informed purchase. I still want it, as do most of us who have already transitioned from Scrivener 1 to the beta, I think.
In fact, I fail to see any down sides for either those of us who want S2 or you, the company that makes the software, by opening up the purchase of licenses.
Thank you for your time and consideration.

I suggest you favorite the link to the upgrade page and install it. I have one machine I use all the time and one I don't and I have to do this on the dekstop regularly. Just click the favorite, download and install still finds the existing version and upgrades over it. Just 1-2 clicks more to do it.
