Summer '08 pre-relase

Just signed for Summer'08 pre-release. While signing there was a note saying that "data will be lost" when Summer'08 version is released.
Is "Data will be lost"  means that  the data created in environment will be lost but not the apex code or objects.
I plan to develop some application using Summer '08 pre-release version and don't want to lose the code.

you should backup all your code if it's important

The code is meta-data and will be gone when the pre-release program is over, you can back this code (and object definitions) up by creating a project in eclipse, and archiving that resulting workspace project directory.


What steps are required in Eclipse to apply the backup. I have tried to apply custom objects definition and custom pages backup to pre-release summer'08 but was not successfull. Do we have to save it to server or deploy?

What SOAP - URL should be used ? Detailed steps would be appreciated. ( I am able to create the backup).


When does the pre-release period end?
