Efter sju svåra år

Releasen av eComStation 2.0 börjar nu faktiskt närma sig om man ska tro utvecklarna:
Almost all issues which have delayed the 2.0 GA have been resolved. Most of the remaining work is primarily resolving the issues with the installer and the integration of disparate components. The ACPI feature is now reaching a point that no longer should delay release, any longer. We do expect to continue to improve ACPI usability in the time after GA....

= eComStation 2.0 Silver Release =

This is anticipated to be the final Release Candidate, the Silver Release. While the last bugs are being ironed out, an initial test release will be provided to the Test Team asap and made available to Software Subscription Services customers a week after that.

= eComStation 2.0 GA Release =

The Silver Release will be feature complete. Only documentation and "fit and finish" items will be worked. The goal is to have the english version of eComStation 2.0 GA ready in August, 2009.

= Want to be in the loop? =

Join the Test Team if you would like to be the first to test the new releases. Please drop us a note at testteam-owner@ecomstation.nlThis e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it if you would like to join. Of course, if you want to help out in other ways then testing, we always welcome active developers to join the eComStation Development Group, eDG.

= Twitter =

To give you more of an idea what's going on (and in fact that there is actually something going on) we created a Twitter feed from several eComStation development feeds.

* eComStation bugtracker (resolved issues)
* eComStation CVS changelog
* eComStation eWiki changes
* eComStation ACPI project at Netlabs

= Thanks for the patience =

Serenity Systems International and Mensys BV are certainly aware of the extreme delays this project has had and we appreciate your patience.
