Chicken of the VNC 2.0b2 Released!

2.0b2 fixes all of the known issues that were in 2.0b1. It also revamps the Profile Management and Preferences windows so that they're simpler to use and more Macintosh-like. 2.0b2 also includes integrated HTML documentation.

Highly recommended upgrade from 2.0b1!

Chicken 2.0b1 Very Buggy

Unfortunately, some serious bugs have slipped into Chicken 2.0b1. I don't recommend upgrading to it unless you're very adventurous.

The issues are present both for users who have never before used a version of Chicken, and who are upgrading from 1.3.6.

For more info, take a look at the bugs that have been posted since 8/18/04.

Sorry to getcha all riled up!
