yesterday changi^Wthe packaging team released the first release
candidate of Acubens! It is available for download at
I tried the 7z package on IIS under Windows 7 (using MySQL 5.5 and
Firefox) and didn't notice any regression.
We are not planning to have more release candidates. The next
release planned is the stable Tiki 8.0... So if you didn't test
Acubens yet, now is the time to do it!

- Can't add a comment to Feature request: Etherpad
- GUID-named HomePage generation: Has been happening since Tiki
6, can be prompted by perspectives setting HomePages, group home
pages and other random "HomePage missing" events (have tried
many times to fix it - JB)
