Since February has passed, it is now obvious that the much anticipated Non-Commercial version of QNX 6.2.1, a.k.a QNX 6.2.1 NC, has delayed. Some insiders even go extremes and predict that NC will be no more. We've just got the good news: Chris McKillop posted that QSS would start the 6.2.1NC beta shortly. You can sign up at http://www.qnx.com/myqnx and get informed when the beta is ready. It is said that the beta will offer the ability to upgrade from your current 6.2.0 install, but you won't be able to revert back to 6.2.0 without a re-install. When 6.2.1 NC is actually released, beta testers will have to do a re-install. It is still unclear why QSS would even need to do a beta for a free version of an OS that's already out.
