Source code and pkgs for MacPorts 2.2.0-rc1 are now
available . 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  (after first searching
Trac , 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
 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.
NOTE FOR DEVELOPERS RUNNING THE 10.9 MAVERICKS PREVIEW:
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.
