Hi Georges,

The prebuilt_frontend make target was made for the time before the first
beta was released, in order to allow people to test nine before it is
actually release without the hassle of installing a recent version of npm.
We barely monitor the result of the generation of this packages, so I am
not sure we should advertise it more than with irc or mailing list support.

Indeed, master has new version of ui, with the new slave worker protocol.
We really should release a b8 version.
