EllisLab has updated the ExpressionEngine blog with some great news! The 2.0 beta is entering phase 2, bringing it closer to completion. There are some fantastic tidbits of information in this post; our thoughts and analysis after the quotes.
There is a good chance that this will be the final beta round prior to public release.
A good sign for everyone. The first beta took about 2-3 months. This means ExpressionEngine 2.0 is around the corner. Can you dig it?
The purpose of Phase Two of the ExpressionEngine 2.0 Beta is to get the EE 2.0 beta into the hands of a wide audience.
While Ellislab is not releasing 2.0 to the public, you can sign up to be allowed access. Here’s how you get your name on the list.
- Go and register at the forums.
- Take the How I use ExpressionEngine survey.
- Once you complete the survey, you’ll get a secret passphrase. Then, proceed to register for the beta.
One very important thing to note:
If you share the secret passphrase publicly or privately you will be rejected from the beta.
The application and survey close on October 2nd at 3pm. Get on it people. Also, by completing the survey you get a chance to win an ExpressionEngine mug. Still awaiting word from EllisLab if the long-haired guy with glasses pictured with the mug (on the blog) comes with it. It would also be good to know if phase 3 was profit.
