The original schedule mentioned Beta 2 would be the last beta and the last 
version in which we would accept new features, but due to my failure to review 
this patches and long delay in the release I think it makes sense to add a 
Beta 3, thus this is the updated schedule:
 * Aug 29 (+2 weeks) Poppler 0.17.3 (0.18 Beta 3)
 * Sep 12 (+2 weeks) Poppler 0.17.4 (0.18 RC)
 * Sep 26 (+2 weeks) Poppler 0.17.3 (0.18)

On my queue for Beta 3 are: 
 * [Bug 38586] support text rotation
 * [Bug 39385] pdftohtml: add image and font extraction
 * Form-Reset and Print [patches]
 * Creating PDF with poppler ?
 * BOM and endianness of poppler::ustring class
 * pdftocairo

If you have any other patch you send and has not been integrated please ping 
me again since someonce it is not on my plate.

Testing, patches and bug reports welcome.
