The Roller 5.0 code base is ready for wider testing and so we are
making available a beta build. This build is not an Apache release,
will not be supported and should not be used for anything other than
testing. It's not a good idea to try to upgrade your existing Roller
site yet. If you choose to try Roller 5.0 beta1 please make sure you
do it on copy of your existing database, uploaded files and search
You can download the build and the updated user and installation
documentation from Dave Johnson's personal web space at Apache.org;
this build will not be made available via Apache mirrors.
I'll prepare a nice and friendly "What's New in Roller 5.0 page"
sometime before the final release. For now, the best sources for
information about what's in Roller are the documentation at download
links below, the Roller 5.0 proposal page and the change list in our
JIRA issue tracker:
