Does Channel D even test PureMusic before they release?

I have been using PureMusic for quite some time now.  I really like what it does for computer playback.  

Having said that, the latest barage of releases to deal with iTunes 11 is a complete joke.  They are on 1.89d now, and this release still plays the first song in my library upon startup, no matter what song I select.  It froze up and I had to restart the computer to fix the freezing twice.  Additionally, I can no longer toggle from non-upsampling to upsampling.  If I do that, playback stops.  I then have to quit PureMusic and restart it.  Then it is in upsampling mode.  It works without issue going the opposite way (upsampling to non-upsampling).

Are they making changes and letting the public test them?  They seem to be making changes on the fly and hope they fix issues, only to create new ones.  

Ugh.

Channel D Pure Music = Pure Garbage

2 releases have come out since this post.  The last 2 have so many problems, it is unusable.  After several issues where the music stopped playing high res, it started playing the song "slow!!!!!!!!".  I'm, talking as if you put resistance on a turntable while it's playing a record.  I have to commend them for this, as I have no idea how you can even program that in if you tried.  I rebooted, start and stopped the application, switched to and from every conceivable setup option and every thing else imaginable and it still behaved in this manner.  The latest version seemed to finally make it stop, but it is still unusable.  If I play everything from iTunes, it works great.  Even switching between low and high res music through the MIDI setup.  I can't be the only one with issues, as the releases keep rolling out.

I'm not wanting to fix the issue or even look for help.  I'm off to Amarra software and I never want to look back.  I only post this as a warning.
