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 2 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 
of the project. Modifications include but are not limited to
* Make Indirect membership clearer.
* Input validation fixes.
* WebUI improvements.
* Created default Roles.
* IPv6 support
* Documentation updates

Focus of the Release Candidate Testing
* There was a Fedora test day for FreeIPA on Feb 15th [3]. These tests 
are still relevant and feedback would be appreciated.
* The following section outlines the areas that we are mostly interested 
to test [4].

Significant Changes Since RC 1
To see all the tickets addressed since the beta 2 release see [6].

Repositories and Installation
* Use the following link to install the RC 2 packages [5].
* 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.
* 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
