I think the feedback can be summed like this: the swirls look a bit too 
Debian-like and they are a bit to white and contrasting with the rest of 
the image. Also, the stars are a bit too strong and too many.

The easiest way to address the Beta banner is to build upon the one used 
for Alpha and improve it slightly (to mark an evolution from Alpha to Beta).

The count down graphic can be based on those banners or not, but it has 
the same image size.

Unfortunately my next few days are busy, I work on some materials 
(graphics, photos, video and web) for Document Freedom Day, so I don't 
think I can contribute this week with other things besides advice.
