Source code and pkgs for MacPorts 2.6.0-rc1 are now
available [1]. Testing of either of these install methods is helpful.

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 2.6.0 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 `port deps` not showing depends_patch
 * Added `bump` action to port man page

Please see the 2.6.0-beta1 announcement [5] for important information
for users of Mac OS X 10.6, 10.7 and 10.8.
