Miro 2.0 rc3 released!

Note: This is an old post in a blog with a lot of posts. The world has changed, technologies have changed, and I've changed. It's likely this is out of date and not representative. Let me know if you think this is something that needs updating.

I tagged and built Miro 2.0 rc3 builds and placed them in the sticky section of the nightlies page.

Pre-release release notes are at https://develop.participatoryculture.org/trac/democracy/wiki/2.0ReleaseNotes.

Changes since rc2:

  • updated translations as of today

  • bug 11329: decimal value for movie duration is never correct in channel view

  • OSX crashers and memory leaks

  • probably some other things I’m missing

The new Miro Guide will be launching very soon now. When that's released, the second browser bar you see in Miro will go away.

I've synced translations, so rc3 has the latest translations. I will sync them one more time before we do a release. If you’re a translator, we sure could use your help! See more at https://translations.launchpad.net/democracy.

We think this release candidate is release-worthy. Assuming testers don't hit any snags, there shouldn't be any changes between now and the final Miro 2.0 release. We're planning to follow Miro 2.0 with a 2.0.1 release in the near future to get the most updated translations and to fix minor issues that pop up.

To Ubuntu Hardy and Intrepid users: Some day I’ll get to learning how PPA works. When that happens, we’ll start building release candidate builds for the Ubuntu versions we support. Until then, you’ll have to download the tarball and build it yourself. If someone can spare some time to help us with this, I’d be much obliged.

Barring snags with this release candidate, we're looking at a full on Miro 2.0 release some time in the next few days. Getting really super close now!
