2.5b5 released

Written for Bazaar by Vincent Ladeuil on 2012-01-20

This is our fifth (and last) beta for the 2.5 series: 2.5b5

Bazaar <http://bazaar.canonical.com/> is a Canonical project and part of the GNU project <http://gnu.org/> to produce a free operating system.

2.5.0 is planned to be released in February 2012.

This release includes many improvements in the smart server, UI polish for the colocated branches, enhancements to the config framework and more internal uses, bug fixes related to unicode and locale support and more.

All bug fixed in previous series known at the time of this release are included.

The 2.5 API is now frozen as are the strings for translations.

Since this is our last beta, I'd like to remind packagers and plugin authors that a special care should be taken to precisely identify which revisions of which plugins are targeted at the 2.5 series and ensure that the plugins are compatible with 2.5b5 (and keep paying attention during the early days of 2.5.0 ;).

A warm thank you to all of you sending feedback, suggestions, even merge proposals making bzr better !
