To all freeipa-interest, freeipa-users and freeipa-devel list members,

The FreeIPA project team is pleased to announce the availability of the
Release Candidate 1 release of freeIPA 2.0 server [1].

* Binaries are available for F-14 and F-15 [2].
* Please do not hesitate to share feedback, criticism or bugs with us on
our mailing list: freeipa-users at redhat.com

Main Highlights of the Release Candidate.

This release consists primarily of bug fixes and polish across all areas 
ofthe project. Modifications include but are not limited to:
* Installation fixes.
* DNS improvements.
* WebUI improvements.

Focus of the Release Candidate Testing
* There is a Fedora test day for FreeIPA on Feb 15th [3]. Please join us 
in testing FreeIPA. The exact instructions will be provided later and 
will be available off the link on the page.
* The following section outlines the areas that we are mostly interested 
to test [4].

Significant Changes Since Beta 2
To see all the tickets addressed since the beta 2 release
see [6].

Repositories and Installation
* Use the following link to install the beta 2 packages [5].
* On Fedora-14 FreeIPA relies on the latest versions
of the packages currently available from the updates-testing
repository. Please make sure to enable this repository before
you proceed with installation.

Known Issues:
* There are known issues that currently prevent FreeIPA from 
successfully installing with dogtag on F-15 [2]. We will send a separate 
message when this issue is resolved. The FreeIPA server is installable 
with the --selfsign option on F-15, or with dogtag on F-14.
* Server-generated error messages are not translated yet.
* IPv6 support is not complete.
* The 'ipa help' command does not support localization.

We plan to address all the outstanding tickets before the final 2.0 
release. For the complete list see [7].

Thank you,
The FreeIPA development team
