First of all congratulation on this amazing software.
You really did a great Job!! Like Melih said, its a really sexy software.
Here are my feedbacks so far, and I will keep posting more in this same thread as soon as I start working with it more often.

. I donwloaded the installer. Icon details need attention (very poor and cut edges). Is what people see first, detailes need to be finished. :azn:
. On Console, Computers > Create Group > Deploy agent on computers… > IP Addresses.
Ok, I need to expand a little bit in here. First of all, TARGET TYPE: I notices that it says IP ADDRESSES, CHOOSE THIS OPTION TO SPECIFY IP ADDRESS MANUALLY. At first, I thought that only IP addresses would be allowed to enter and not FQDNs (domains). After selecting this, I go to the next step, IP ADDRESSES: input appears to add the IP address or the FQDN. I added my domain just to give it a try (note that by this time I thought only IP addresses could be added but just thought on trying out) and then click the arrow to go to the next step. The message in red appeard: YOU SHOULD SPECIFY AT LEAST ONE IP ADDRESS. This message gave me the impression that definitely a domain couldnt be added. Clicked it again and the same red message appeared.
After a few minutes, trying to figure it out… I found a PLUS (+) sign next to the input, on the left side. That actually gave me the impresion that I could add more inputs to add more IPs. After clicking it, I figured out that it was to actually add the IP address that I typed in the input, and then I should click the arrow to go to the next step. So as you can see, the ARROW TO GO TO THE NEXT STEP, the PLUS SIGN, and the instructions saying that only IP ADDRESSES CAN BE ADDED, the three elements confused me about adding an agent.
So in conclusion, with this I would give 3 suggestions: 1) The arrows to go to the next step should be bigger or be placed in other place where you can see them. Or perhaps a more lightful color, other than grey. Because to be honest, at the first step I was waiting for the application to move on (since the other options at the console, respond in that way). 2) I noticed that domains can also be added. So this should be added in the description along with the IP addresses. 3) The plus sign, should be changed to the string “ADD NOW” or something like that. And to be moved AFTER the input, not before. This way it will give the idea that people should type and press the button. Because the way it is right now, its not intuitive (because of the order or the elements). Once the IP ADDRESS/FQDN is added, it should be move to a list (not under the input).
. No Logout button?
So far this is what I could find out while adding agents.
If I find more stuffs, like I said, I would keep posting in this thread.
But in resume, you have bulit a very strong beta release. Congratulations! 8)
