It's official: Red5 0.8 Release Candidate 2 (RC2) is now live. Visit:

Now, some thanks are in order:
1) Thank you to Mondain.
This release involved a lot of people, but would not have happened
without Mondain -- it would have been dead on arrival. If you haven't
sent hugs to your friendly neighborhood Mondain, do so now.
2) Big thanks (props) to, well, YOU!
The outpouring of support from the community was great. We had over
20 people sign up for testing, along with many others who didn't "sign
up" in advance. We had people submit patches and unit tests to fix
our open bugs. I'm not going to name folks individually (too many),
but the spirit of cooperation is exactly what Red5 needs. Keep up the
3) Lastly thanks to Infrared5
Infrared5 (http://www.infrared5.com/) is a company that does some
interesting Flash and Web projects, and in addition to running a great
business, also encourages their employees to give back to open source
projects, and donates equipment for hosting behind the scenes. That's
why we have Mondain's, Dominick's, and many other's time. If you're a
manager, but have folks on your team who are chomping at the bit to
work on Red5, you could really learn from what Infrared5 does, and
actively give them time to give back to Red5. You'll find it now only
helps the community; it helps your business too!
Now the team is moving onto Release Candidate 3 (and hopefully our
last 0.8 release). The plan for that is:
1) Fix the Red5 War install (you can't install Red5 0.8.RC2 as a WAR
in another Tomcat instance; we hope to fix that).
2) Fix a few remaining bugs in our Windows Installers and hopefully
3) Despite the name "Release Candidate", we'll likely add a few new
features as well. Specifically stay tuned for a slight but powerful
change in how Listeners work!
After that, who knows. I'm not big on predicting too far :)
That's all, and have a great weekend!
