2.4-alpha1 is cut!

Many teeth were gnashed and garments rent, but (as of last Friday) there is now available, for your downloading pleasure, the first alpha release of Evergreen 2.4.  The web site will be updated shortly, and when it is you will see a new column for 2.4 on the downloads page at http://evergreen-ils.org/downloads.php.

In the mean time the important files can be had from the following locations:


Thanks to everyone who has worked on this release.  There is a lot of great stuff in here.

Thanks also go specifically to Ben Shum, who put together an alpha version of the 2.4 release notes.  I’m not incorporating it into the alpha branch, since features are still being added until beta, but if you want to see what is in the alpha1 cut (and has had at least some simple release notes treatment) you can find that at: http://git.evergreen-ils.org/?p=working/Evergreen.git;a=blob_plain;f=docs/RELEASE_NOTES_2_4.txt;hb=9abccb6caaff8d7f93b1f55b7732669bb6aaefd2
