Miro 2.5 is virtually complete, and we’re putting extra emphasis on testing for this version, because there are a lot of changes to the database code (changes which make Miro faster to launch and easier to hack on).
If you are a daring Miro user, your testing help in the next couple days would be extremely helpful. If you see any bugs, definitely let us know! As always, beta versions are incomplete and could have serious bugs, so only proceed if you are willing to have things get weird.
You can post a comment on this blog post or report a bug.
We are especially looking for any problems with upgrading from Miro 2.0.5 to this version. If you lose your feeds or if Miro refuses to start up, please tell us! And if you really know your stuff, send along your database to firstname.lastname@example.org so we can see what went wrong. (You also should be able to restore your database from the backups that Miro automatically creates on upgrade.)
Thanks everyone! Look for an RC in the next couple days and the full release shortly after that.
