And yet, shouldn't there already be an alpha version for adventurous players to try out and for modders to test and fix their mods?
There are already multiple alphas out. The last one is 0.16, wich has been declared "stable" meaning that it will likely not crash or eat your saves.
It does not include the new features and upgrades that will come with the new (and surely experimental) 0.17 - but it is considered to be pretty good already and you can play it right right now.

An alpha version of an alpha version? :roll:

If 0.17 isn't released I think they can change a lot of things which makes fixed mods for an older 0.17 unplayable an the modders waste a lot of time

The very thing you're asking for. I've been playing it for 5 years. Though it wasn't always called 0.16, it was always the alpha build of unfinished software.

Sorry, sounded to me like you had just bought the game and not having any experience with the Factorio release cycle. Nice to know, that you did not really expected Wube to rush something...
