This is an illegal download. Beta versions of products are not usualy made available to the end users for good reasons. Stability is only one. If you download this file and use it you can bet you''ll have to recode your apps all over again when the final version becomes available.

FYI, 8.0b isn''t a new version of the SDK, its beta version of some small bugfixes for the D3DX library. If you haven''t had any problems with the library, its unlikely you need the fixes.

Not really dangerous, but still better to wait for a properly tested version.

8.0 ''b''? Why bother? 8.0 and 8.0a performed funky voodoo on my system, and I finally got rid of it with a helpful registry merge.

What type of voodoo? Any program that used DirectInput and MIDI under DirectMusic would have slow and inconsistent tempos (speed at which the music is played) and the Input always became botched (ex. left became right, keyboard died, controllers sending information with no buttons pressed.) Yes, I did reinstall every driver, including DirectX 8. It was only when I "downgraded" to 7 that almost everything ran fine again. Anyone else have similar probelms with 8?

Well it looks like Microsoft found out about the leak and pluged it with a giant cork. The page is no longer up and the files are gone. Guess everyone will have to wait for the official release of the SDK now anyway.
