Source code and pkg/dmgs for MacPorts 2.1.0-rc1 are now
available [1]. Testing of either of these install methods is helpful.

While there are no known regressions from 2.0.4 at this point, be
prepared to encounter bugs. As always, having a recent backup would be
wise. Please report any bugs that you find [2] (after first searching
Trac [3], of course!)

If no showstopping bugs are found in the next few days, this will become
the 2.1.0 release.

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:
 * Fixed installing from archives on systems where tar is gnutar (i.e.
   Leopard and Tiger). (#34080)
 * Fixed incorrect behaviour of 'port deps' and 'port log' in the case
   where a subport is specified via a glob or pseudo-portname selector.
