We need the help of the community to test that new release. It will be very very close to the 1.0 as we now have started the profiling and stress test phases.
That release includes some new - unique - features such as :
* the community concept, that allows to load portal template and
navigation pages according to the group the users belongs too,
* the ability for the admin to load and modify any portal
configuration for any other user,
* new monitoring portlets including user navigation monitoring to
allow analysis of user browsing behavior.
* enhanced forum and mail portlet, our development forum has finally
been ported to that new portlet, we eat our own dog food :)
