Source code and pkgs for MacPorts 2.3.0-beta2 are now
available . Testing of either of these install methods is helpful.
Be prepared to encounter bugs. As always, having a recent backup would
be wise. Please report any bugs that you find  (after first searching
Trac , of course!)
There are a large number of changes in this release. See the ChangeLog
 for a list of most of them. You may like to focus your testing on
the new features in that list, as well as your normal usage.
Notable changes since beta1 are:

* Fixed pkg_mkIndex failure at build time on Leopard and Tiger
* Fixes for trace mode when not running as root
* Fixed an error when executing portfiles from the registry
Known issue: make install will fail on Tiger due to chmod not accepting
the -h option. A fix is already on the branch:
