Source code and disk images for MacPorts 2.0.0-rc1 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
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!)
If no showstopping bugs are found in the next few days, this will become
the 2.0.0 release.
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 beta3 are:
* The installer's check for the existence of the 'macports' group now
works correctly on 10.5. (#30096)
* It's again possible to clean just the directories in ~/.macports by
running 'port clean' without privileges.
* A few issues with fetching archives have been fixed.
