Source code and disk images for MacPorts 1.9.0-beta2 are now
available [1]. Testing of either of these install methods is helpful.

While there are no known regressions from 1.8.2 at this point, be
prepared to encounter bugs. Please report any that you find [2] (after
first searching Trac [3], of course!)

There are a large number of changes in this release. See the ChangeLog
[4] 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:
 * Fix for a bug where dependencies that could be satisfied by more than
one port would sometimes incorrectly not be considered to be satisfied
(ticket #24808)
 * Fixed registry conversion failure when an installed port has been
force activated (ticket #24880)
 * Fixed "too many open files" error when installing many ports in a
single command (ticket #24857)

See the beta1 announcement [5] for information about switching to the
new registry format.
