2.1 now release candidate tagged

We’ve tagged 2.1 as RC0, as release time nears. This means it’s feature-complete, and has no significant known regressions from prior releases. How much longer until release depends on what’s discovered from here out. We don’t anticipate there being a long release candidate cycle, given how widespread 2.1 usage has been over the past year plus. Now’s the time to help test!

Please post anything that requires follow up to the 2.1 board on the forum rather than the comments here on the blog. Far more people are active on the forum and will see it there.

The master branch in git has been bumped to 2.2-ALPHA in preparation for development on 2.2 release. We’ll soon be putting efforts into getting our patches and code up to speed for FreeBSD 10.x for 2.2 release.
