The winter has been busy everywhere, and not much happened in FusionForge land. However, this is over, and we've started pushing again, with a focus on making our next 5.2 release ready.
We've started a stabilisation branch and set up Jenkins jobs to run our various testsuites on it. Packages built from that branch have also been uploaded to the "experimental" suite in Debian (they need a manual approval before they actually appear there, but that shouldn't take too long). They should be installable and working even on Debian Squeeze (stable), although they focus mostly on Wheezy (testing). My personal goal is to have a solid 5.2 release and include it in Wheezy so it can be part of an official Debian system.
What this all means is that we welcome tests and reports of breakage; users of 5.1 or earlier versions in particular are encouraged to test upgrades (in virtual machines or development environments, obviously, if the production server is sensitive). We also welcome translators; there are many new plugins, which means many new translatable strings.
We'll probably do release candidates before the final release; I'll announce them here (in addition to the fusionforge.org website).
