There have been quite a few large changes prior to Beta2 that need a little more time to hash out before we cut the release, so the beta has been delayed until later today. If it ends up being too rough we'll cut a Beta3 in a shorter amount of time than 2 weeks.
We are switching from our current CMS platform to a JBoss Bootstrap / Awestruct community site. It is staged at: http://teiid-stg.jboss.org/ and will be backed by a git repository: https://github.com/teiid/community-website
Please have a look at the staging site for any continuity or formatting errors. We'll look to migrate in a couple of weeks probably about the time 8.7 CR1 is due. We'll update wiki and other related content as we get a feel for the new system.

I'd like to get out Beta2 in the next couple of days. It seems that the only thing we may want to hold it up for is the gss/kerberos refinements especially for ODBC. Let me know if there is anything else.
