Releasing development ISOs is a good way to test all the functions of the installer with the largest possible scope of use cases and variety of hardware. We still have some issues left with EFI integration and some tricky bugs in the installer. So in order to allow some time to fix them and also to still enjoy the Christmas period with friends and family, it has been decided to delay beta 2 until the 6th of January 2015, the initial date of the RC, and then postpone the final release.
We will communicate on the final release date as soon as beta 2 is released so that we can have a better view of the remaining work to be done.
We wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a great year for 2015 and we hope to see you ready on deck to test beta 2 release when it’s out !
