Source code and disk images for MacPorts 2.0.0-beta3 are now
available . Testing of either of these install methods is helpful.
While there are no known regressions from 1.9.2 at this point, be

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.

* The images_to_archives.tcl upgrade script should produce more useful
error output if it fails due to e.g. insufficient permissions.
* Creation of the macports1.0 symlink in the tcl_package_dir should
work properly for non-root installs (note this only affects loading
the macports package in tclsh, not running macports normally)
* The fallback when the configured macportsuser doesn't exist should
