A beta is a male who, instead of being alpha and manning up, completely bitches out. Can apply to many situations, but often refers to scenarios with women.
Guy 1: Bro, hook me up with that girl's friend
Guy 2: Fuck that. I'm going to double up with both of them. Stop being such a beta.

A beta version of a program, game etc... is an unfinished version released to either the public a select few or whoever signs up to beta test it for bugs or glitches. A common mistake people make when talking about for exampl 'Msn beta' is they say 'better' instead of beta.
Windows is not exactly a beta test because instead of testing all the numerous bugs in the operating system they sell them :P.

This can refer to many things, like the second letter of the greek alphabet, software in development, or a person.

In the case of a person, a beta male is submissive, clingy, indecisive, weakminded, and unconfident. He can't deal with confrontation or challenges. He lets things happen instead of taking action.

When it comes to women, he either sucks up to them and loses their respect, or is too afraid to pursue them. If he does get a girlfriend, he makes too many demands on her, and either drives her away or becomes locked into servitude. The hoverhand is one of the surest signs of a beta.

Overall, he is the opposite of an alpha male.
Did you see him spam that girl's facebook page full of messages without getting a response? That was really beta.

In Indian culture, it's used by usually aunty-ji's (older women) towards younger kids for almost any reason. Seriously.
Aunty-Ji: Beta, come over here!
Teen: What?
Aunty-Ji: You need to have lots of food so you can grow taller!
Teen: I'm already done with my growth spurt, Aunty. I'm also really full.

Aunty-Ji: Not on my watch!

Beta is climbing jargon that designates information about a climb. In rock climbing this may include information about a climb's difficulty, crux, style, length, quality of rock, ease to protect, required equipment, and specific information about hand or foot holds. For alpine climbs, beta may include information about the length and difficulty of the approach, availability of water on the climb and the approach, ease of exiting the route before completing it, descent information, perhaps even useful logistic information for climbs in foreign countries.
"Hey the crux of that route is intense, you want some beta?"
