Online Indexing Program Being Released in Stages

For the last few years, we have had a series of Beta tests of a proposed online Indexing program from Now, the "real" program has finally been released. However, the release is in stages. Here is a quote from the announcement.
Web indexing will be replacing the desktop indexing application and is being slowing rolled out during 2017. Stake temple and family history consultants with an indexing assignment, along with priesthood leaders worldwide, were given access for testing this platform at the end of January. These consultants should be learning the application and preparing to train their stake members once web indexing is made available to the public in coming months. 
Consultants were giving a head start on learning the new program at the start of this year. In coming months, web indexing will be made public. By the end of the year, FamilySearch hopes to have all indexers using web indexing so they can retire the desktop version. New features are still being added to web indexing and will continue to be added throughout the year.
I have seen the new program but do not have access as yet, probably because I am not one of the people named in the announcement. I will talk more about the program when I get access to it. But be aware that it is out there and becoming available.
