The Aegir team is pleased to announce the first release candidate for the upcoming Aegir 2.0 release.
This release mainly targets a few critical bugs that were found in the second beta, mostly related to ongoing Views, Drush integration and access control. We also introduce a number of new features and finally drop support for provisioning Drupal 5 sites completely (for real this time!). Along the way, we did quite a bit of API cleanup.
* Feature freeze begins, only critical and major bug fixes will be
* A few bugfixes, especially to the Debian package, the new views code
and nginx support.
* This release adds subdirectory support, a nice homepage and fixes SSL
support and IP allocation on clusters. We also ship with a wider
variety of roles.

This release features improvements to the IP management mechanisms that were broken in the last alpha1 release. We now manage IP addresses individually, and check if an IP is in use before allowing it to be deleted.
