we have just released the first (and hopefully final) release candidate
for ownCloud 2.0.0.

Downloads for Windows, Mac OS X and multiple Linux distributions can be
found at https://owncloud.org/install/#testing-development. For those of
you who want to give 2.0 a try, but do not wish to replace their stable
ownCloud client with a pre-release version, we offer a special
"Testpilot" version which you can use next to your production instance,
and will not interfere with the syncing of your production ownCloud client.

Compared to beta1, these are the most significant changes:

  * UX improvements (for the multi account UI)
  * Introduce [...] button in account view
  * Accessibility improvements (high contrast schemes)
  * Don't show redundant directory entries in activity log
  * Improve SSL button reliability (work around Qt bug)
  * Remove deleted accounts properly from toolbar
  * File manager integration: Show hidden files as ignored
  * Ignoring hidden files: Fix glitches when migrating from 1.8
  * Show wizard when last account was deleted
