Greetings!

Season 2 is shaping up and preparing to ship July 27th. The first Season 2 build went up to the TRIBBLE test shard a little over a week ago and we've had several updates since then. We expect to have several more updates before our final Season 2 release build.

As we've been discussing in the Engineering Report - many of the features previously in development are now in internal testing and some are even on the TRIBBLE test shard. However, as with past releases, some features are not ready for release and some we didn't expect to be ready are.

This report will keep you up to date on where we are at for the Season 2 release and what will be wokring on for minor updates shortly after the release.
