Apologies if you've asked this before and I missed it :)
The new release process is that Alpha builds come out quite regularly, every few days or sometimes several in a day, like the old "next" snapshots did.
The key point about Beta releases is: "
So, if you are interested in testing the latest "bleeding edge" code which gets updated regularly, then you want the Alpha snapshots (with the usual caveat that while they usually work fine, they may not be completely stable or work in every situation - in which case please let us know, and also keep a stable build handy).
If you want a more reliably stable experience but still want to test out new features before the masses, Beta should have you covered for that and you'll start to get those about 5 weeks before a new release is due (the last beta cycle was longer, being the first time we'd changed to that system).
All the snapshots are available from the snapshots page at: https://www.nvaccess.org/files/nvda/snapshots/
