Source code and pkgs for MacPorts 2.2.0-rc1 are now
available [1]. Testing of either of these install methods is helpful.

While there are no known regressions from 2.1.3 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 show-stopping bugs are found in the next few days, this will
become the 2.2.0 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 disabling the default archive source in archive_sites.conf
 * workaround: disabled sandboxing for the 'pkg' target on 10.8 until a
   real fix can be found.

Deletion of libtool archives (".la" files) now happens by default. You
will want to reinstall all your ports to avoid build failures. As a
temporary workaround you can add 'delete_la_files no' to macports.conf,
but this should not be relied upon long-term.
