     1= 1.3.0 Release Candidate 2 Release Announcement = 
     2 
     3The second (and probably final) release candidate for Bcfg2 1.3.0 is now available at: 
     4 
     5ftp://ftp.mcs.anl.gov/pub/bcfg 
     6 
     7Bcfg2 1.3.0rc2 is a release candidate, and should be representational of the final 1.3.0 release.  The code is quite stable at this point, but this remains a release *candidate*, so please consider carefully whether or not it is suitable for production deployment at your site.  Please help us test the release wherever you can, including production and non-production environments.

     9There are two minor user-facing changes for users of previous 1.3.0 prereleases and release candidate: 
     10 
     11  * Configuring strict/lax decryption is no longer done separately in the `[sshkeys]` and `[properties]` sections, but once in the `[encryption]` section (http://docs.bcfg2.org/dev/server/encryption.html#lax-vs-strict-decryption) 
     12  * It is no longer necessary to explicitly enable encryption on each Properties file. 
     13

     15
