There are two significant changes:

1. Printers has been removed in favor of Peripherals. The two tables

OpenIT 2.0-beta2 Released

OpenIT 2.0-beta2 Release

The most significant changes in the second beta release of OpenIT 2.0
are in the tools/setup.php script. There are a few other minor bug
fixes, and the documentation (doc/*) has been updated.

There was a database change between b2 and b3, so upgrade instructions
are provided in a new document: doc/upgrade.txt

There will probably be a beta3 released in the next couple weeks which
will hopefully address issues such as standardizing date/time handling,
removing or completing Reporting, and removing the deprecated Printers
section. After these issues have been addressed, release candidates
will be released until all release critical issues are resolved.
