Bangarang 2.0 Release Candidate

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , — jamboarder @ 9:07 am

I’m happy to announce that the Bangarang 2.0 Release Candidate is now available.  It can be downloaded from  Packagers are welcome to get the source tarball from here.

We completed what I believe was a very successful and productive beta phase. I hope these efforts are reflected in this release candidate.  Do not doubt that you can contribute in a substantive and meaningful way to open source software projects by providing helpful, constructive bug reports.  Many bugs have been fixed and features implemented directly and solely as a result of the excellent issue reporting during this beta phase.  I’ll provide a full description of changes and improvements since 1.0 when the final 2.0 release is announced.

All strings are now frozen and folks who would like to translate Bangarang into your favorite language for the final 2.0 release are welcome to do so in the usual ways – merge requests or email – over the remainder of this week.

If there are no show-stoppers Bangarang 2.0 should be available by January 31, 2011.

Thanks to everyone who have provided so much support during this 2.0 development cycle.  We’re almost there!



  1. thanks for your work!
    at the the release date, could you provide binaries for the most used distros on your website and/or Opensuse Build Service could be helpful.

    Packagin software for Linux distributions is job of the distributors, not the software developers. That is the key idea why the security is high and usability is better. If you want pre-combiled binaries, contact to your distributor or check if there is community/testing/unstable repository for your distribution where you would get the binary backported.
