I should already have been approved ad beta tester (it's ~3 weeks ago, I got the logon). At bugs.waze.com I can see all the incidents. And at waze.centercode.com I can download the beta App.

Anything else I have to do?

I really dislike this so far. I goes to this screen after Switch Off and you then must tap Home to get back to the Springboard. The "switch off" has changed now to turning off GPS and data connections, but doesn't actually exit the app.
I agree....At least you can do a count down of few seconds and then exit automatically.
I said it already on Centercode, but I'll post it here, too.

This change comes from Apple's app guidelines. Apple discourages apps from having their own "shut down" feature. Their guidelines state that the only way to get to the home screen should be the home button.

Is that why Waze changed from shut down to -...removed...- option ?
