Last night Barry cut the final Beta for both 2.6 and 3.0. After this, it's release candidates. Benjamin has a more detailed post - and many thanks go to him and Barry for their work on driving the releases out and closing out the blockers.
Please download and test. I'm still juggling a list of multiprocessing bugs (I'll be updating my old post later). It's important we squirrel out as many issues as possible now, no more API changes though.
