Dude, the GPL doesn't say that you can release source only when it's convenient, you must release when you release a binary. They have released the binary and not full source. This is a violation of the GPL. It matters not that it's called a beta or preview. It's a binary.

You must be one of those people that just sit around while their privacy and freedoms are eroded in the name of protecting us from terrorism. "Relax, it's just a safty precation. The government always does the right thing."
