After months of work, the v2.0 codebase for the LibraryBox Project has reached Release Candidate 1, which means it's time for a Public Beta! There are a huge number of improvements, enhancements, and all around awesome things in the v2.0. I recommend you take a look at the About v2.0 page to see the highlights.

Just a reminder about what "Public Beta" means. This is absolutely releasable code, or I wouldn't put it out there...but no code is fully tested until it's deployed into the world. I've built over a dozen LibraryBoxen using this code, tested them, changed settings and set up Sync networks, FTP'd into them, and just about every other thing I could think of to make sure it was stable. There was a private beta among just a very small handful of testers, but to really make sure that this is ready for prime time, it needs to be in the public. So that's what we're doing.

Almost certainly this code will be the full release v2.0 code. But if one of you brave souls discovers something that we didn't, I want to be able to fix it before we are officially at v2.0.

I hope you enjoy the code. Please build your own, upgrade your existing LibraryBox 1.5 to the v2.0, or better yet, buy a pre-built LibraryBox and help support the project towards the v2.5 release.
