This is opening the issue for this version that corresponds to the issue that was already patched for the 1.x branches.
I just manually applied the patch that was written for the 6.x-1.x branch to this (6.x-2.0-beta1) and it seems to fix the problem.
Specifically, the issue I was encountering was that the dropdown selection was not appearing for the menu mini panel.
