Plumi 3.0 Beta2 is a fully functional release of Plumi built on Plone 3.3.4. Plumi is a free software video sharing platform. Plumi 3.0 Beta2 enables all the features previously available with Plumi 0.2.3 and includes some additional enhancements and bug fixes listed below. A 3.0-Final release will follow in the coming weeks.

The release can be downloaded at http://plone.org/products/plumi/releases/3.0-Beta2 or you can access the release via svn. We’d love to have people testing the beta2 to assist with the progression through a Release Candidate version and on to the final production release. If you find any issues in testing please report them via the Plumi Trac.
