We're pleased to announce our second release candidate of our new
11.2.0 software release.

Information and installation instructions can be found here:

Quick links for those who know which files need to be grabbed and save
to USB disks:

This is a signed release candidate that can be installed on all XOs,
even those with security enabled.

We're looking for testing and feedback on all aspects of the system.
Thanks for any help you can offer, and for all the feedback that has
been received already.

Our scheduled release date is July 18th.

Since release candidate 1 (build 870) we have fixed the following issues:

Various collaboration-related bugs were fixed. Collaboration in Read
and ImageViewer is now working again. In the neighborhood view, users
correctly cluster around shared activities again, and connecting to
gabble no longer results in duplication of your own buddy icon.

Journal fixes include less needless rescanning and the ability to
modify file information on external disks.

FotoToon is now a favorite activity by default.

XO-1.5 graphics rendering bugs could be seen sometimes in Moon and
Browse - now fixed.

XO-1.5 laptops using the original XO-1 "ALPS" keyboard are now usable again.

The XO-1.5 boot partition is now correctly mounted after boots where
activation happens.

The blank screen during XO-1 boot no longer happens.
