Evergreen 2.0, alpha 3 release ready and waiting


Yesterday we (the Evergreen development team) finished wrapping up the Evergreen 2.0 alpha 3 release and made it available for your consumption, inspection, testing, development – what have you.

The released ??files, including the source tarball, staff clients for Windows and Linux, and a virtual image built on Debian Squeeze, are available from the Evergreen downloads page, along with installation instructions.

This alpha release reflects a ton of bug fixes, usability enhancements, and performance imporovements since the alpha 2 release, undoubtedly aided by the concentration of a significant portion of the development teams’ focus on a migration of a large production environment to this code base.

Thanks for contributions to this release are owed to many in the community, but let’s call out special praise for Thomas Berezansky from MVLC for providing us with the Linux staff client packaging target, and to Chris Sharp of Georgia PINES, Anoop Atre of Minnesota PALS, and Benjamin Shum of Bibliomation Inc. for going through the install process in prior alpha releases and providing us with the feedback we needed to correct problems in install process and accompanying documentation.
