I would really like to ship an ePub export in 2.4, building upon the
DocBook export. I think I could work on that this week.

For alpha vs. beta, I often see that alpha is near-release, but not yet
feature-frozen, while the developers would like feedback on the current
state of the software; beta is feature-frozen, with only bug fixes included
in one release to the other (RC meaning that only critical bug fixes are
being fixed).
