We fixed the last major MDMF blocker tonight (#1561), so we're finally
clear to tag beta1. This means the web-API and CLI arguments are stable,
and we're comfortable with supporting them for a while.

The changes since alpha2 are pretty minor:

 * CLI: use "tahoe put --format=MDMF" to create an MDMF file, instead of
   "tahoe put --mutable --mutable-type=MDMF"
 * web: WUI now has a three-item radiobox (CHK, SDMF, MDMF) instead of
   the tricky one-togglebutton+two-item-radiobox combination
 * web-API t=JSON output now emits upper-case "format: MDMF" instead of
   lower-case "mutable-type: mdmf"
 * MDMF filecaps no longer include the extra two "extension fields"
   (containing 'k' and segsize), and tolerate (ignore) arbitrary
   extension fields from the future

So 1.9.0b1 is available for download:


 (also .zip, or .tar.bz2, or the -SUMO variants)

You can also fetch it via any of our fine version control systems:

 darcs get --lazy --tag=allmydata-tahoe-1.9.0b1 \
  http://tahoe-lafs.org/source/tahoe-lafs/trunk tahoe-lafs-1.9.0b1


 git clone -b allmydata-tahoe-1.9.0b1 git://github.com/warner/tahoe-lafs.git

or, if you already have a git checkout:

 git pull
 git checkout allmydata-tahoe-1.9.0b1

Remaining work for 1.9:

 * docs
 * packaging tests
 * test against upcoming Foolscap release, also current Twisted trunk

The list of remaining tickets[1] shrinks daily. Current plan is to
release 1.9 around the end of the month. Please test!

have a beta-riffic day,
