We released CiviCRM v2.0.3. This issue addresses a few issues in upgrade and fixes approx 20 bugs. We do not maintain a CHANGELOG (i think we need to start doing this), but you can see the list of changes here:

v2.0.3 was released 29 days after v2.0.2. This is a pretty good indicator of the quality of the 2.0 release and we hope to improve on this even more in the 2.1 series with automated testing.

Earlier today we pushed out v2.0.2 of CiviCRM. You can download it here. We have fixed approx 67 issues between 2.0.1 and 2.0.2 (this involved approx 170 commits). This brings us to a grand total of 504 issues resolved for the 2.0 series. We suspect (and hope) that the rate of bugs filed / issues fixed will slow down significantly for future 2.0.x releases.

Attempt to reduce support issues ...

We monitor the forums quite a bit and are always trying to figure out how to reduce / minimize the repeated requests. Many a time my strong stance on refusing to fix something obvious delays a few fixes (yes, i'm learning all the time and hopefully improving and becoming a wee bit wiser). I got a bit tired and fed up of seeing the same requests over and over again, so earlier today I went on a spree and fixed (or attempted to fix) a few of the most common support requests or mistakes. Without further ado, here are the ones we fixed today:

A minor typo in a php file managed to squeeze its way into the release (CRM/ACL/BAO/ACL.php, line 799 or so there is an extra 'x')

So we've released CiviCRM v2.0.1. We took the opportunity to fix a few other minor issues. We expect to do bug fix releases every other week for the next few months.

Apologies for the messup. Folks who've downloaded 2.0.0 need not feel compelled to download 2.0.1. Please use the following patch for your distribution: ACL Patch

Announcing CiviCRM 2.0 Stable

After more than 6 months of design, development and QA - the team is thrilled to announce the release of CiviCRM 2.0 Stable. You can download the release AND / OR try it out on our demo sites. 2.0 features significant code and schema changes to improve performance and scalability - as well as a number of exciting new features. You can find Release Highlights here, and check out the resolved issues listing for details on the 450+ improvements and bug fixes. A big round of applause is due to all the folks who downloaded, tested and submitted bug reports during the 2.0 release cycle. The alpha and beta packages were downloaded more than 3,200 times - and our new ping-back mechanism reported 450+ unique installations. 100+ bugs were reported by community members and fixed by the team during the release cycle. This is a huge increase and improvement in community participation in bullet-proofing a release - and should help make this a high quality release. However, given the complexity of the architecture and schema changes - we do anticipate that a few more issues will arise during the coming weeks. We plan on doing periodic bug fix releases every few weeks as needed.

Earlier today at approx 6:00 am NZT (yes, we are early birds), we released CiviCRM v2.0-beta4. At approx 9:00 am, I saw a post from aaron about some missing files in the release. I downloaded and verified what aaron said and realized we had messed up big time :(. Our release czar piotr was offline and not reachable. Michal and I had to dive into the release code and figure out what was happening.

2.0 Beta 5 Released

The beta4 release was missing the DAO files. We've replaced the beta4 release with a new beta5 release. The Beta 5 release of CiviCRM 2.0 is now available for download on SourceForge. As we noted in our blog, the 2.0 beta series has gotten really good community feedback and testing. However, we'd like to increase the number of downloads and installs for Beta 5. Check this out if you need convincing that downloading this beta is worth your time!. We currently have close to 300 sites that have tested a beta release. We'd like to see this number go past 400 before the final release. If you've already installed 2.0 beta 1 or 2 or 3 - and have reported issues - please take the time to install beta 5 and verify that your issues have been resolved. There were no database changes from beta 3. We hope that this will be the last beta before a final release next week. This is also the last opportunity for us to help you upgrade your 1.9 database. If we think your db has triggered a potential bug, we will ask you to mail us the database, fix the bug AND your database and mail it back to you :) If you have some suggestions or comments on how we can improve CiviCRM usability, please post on our newly created forum topic: What part of CiviCRM are you having difficulty with right now?
