After a frenetic week or two of activity, many fixes to the biggest
problems seen in beta6 have been completed, and work on the backlog of
issues in the bugtracker has commenced. This means you can now get 2.0
beta 7 as a tarball release. 


There will be a binary release for OS X of this release, stayed tuned
for an announcement.
