A New Milestone for FF 2.0

On May 13th Bon Echo Alpha 2 was released. Now I am sure you are asking “Oh humble Guru what the heck is Bon Echo?”. Bon Echo is the project name for FF 2.0, named after the park in Ontario, Canada. I have yet to play with this release yet but do look forward to doing so tomorrow. Some of the new features in this release include (click links below to see Blog entries):

Now keep in mind FF 2.0 is not scheduled for final release until late summer or early fall. Further we are only in the Alpha releases at this moment. For those of you not familiar with the release progression:

  • Alpha 1
  • Alpha 2
  • Alpha 3*
  • Beta 1
  • Beta 2*
  • Release Candidate (RC) 1
  • Release Candidate (RC) 2
  • Release Candidate (RC) 3*

* If needed

Note: Release Candidates are nearly final releases. All the features have been completed, but there may be some bugs, security or other issues that still need to be fixed. The final Release Candidate becomes the live/production version.

Stay tuned for more details as I test and review this release.
