The release of the 2.05RC1 is a first step for the feature freeze on 2.05 which will happen on October, 8th. After that no new features will be going into 2.05 anymore and only bugs will be fixed. This will allow us to make 2.05 more stable in a shorter time period. It means also that we will release 2.05 builds more often. Also, bug fixes for 2.00+ will still be done but are limited to serious issues only (which are rare these days). If you can code and want to give us a helping hand please have a look at the bug tracker.
In other news the latest 2.00+ version now supports MSSQL support on Linux, again. This feature has been missing quite some time and prevented some people updating from 1.92 to 2.0. Well, no reason to hold back anymore :-).
