Hi *,

for the upcoming new version 3.5.0, we start with a beta0 build that
likely will have a few rough edges, and is not yet feature-complete. 
We will feature-freeze next Monday, and then branch off the code -
release plan timings are here:


Builds are now being uploaded to a public (but non-mirrored - so don't
spread news too widely!) place, as soon as they're available. Grab
them here:


If you've a bit of time, please give them a try & report *critical*
bugs not yet in bugzilla here, so we can incorporate them into the
release notes. Please note that it takes approximately 24 hours to
populate the mirrors, so that's about the time we have to collect

Known bugs so far include:
 + Windows installer is in English only (has been fixed today)
 + Windows unopkg.bin crashes during install (will be fixed ASAP)
 + Windows applications start a console window (fdo#42914 - fixed)
 + Windows version _removes_ 3.3/3.4 installations - this behaviour
   will be switched back for beta1 again - only RCs should do that.

The list of fixed bugs in this release is here:


 (warning, monstrous list - a lot has happened since April)

So playing with the areas touched there also greatly appreciated - and
validation that those bugs are really fixed.

Thanks a lot for your help,

-- Thorsten
