We expect that this release candidate will be the last one before the final Geeklog 2.0.0 release. If you have a chance please test this release on a non-production site. If you find any bugs, you can add them to the Geeklog Bugtracker. If all goes smoothly we hope the final version of Geeklog 2.0.0 to be released by the end of March.
