GeoNode 1.2-beta1

The GeoNode team is proud to release the first beta of GeoNode 1.2. This is not yet recommended for production sites, but we highly encourage anyone running a production site to test it out and give us immediate feedback on any critical issues that arise. The final release of GeoNode 1.2 will include instructions on how to update from older versions.

To install the beta release on an Ubuntu system (assuming Ubuntu 12.04) please use the following commands: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:geonode/testing sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install geonode

For other systems or custom installations, download the GeoNode-1.2b1.tar.gz tarball and use the included install script.

GeoNode 1.2 will be the first release compatible with Ubuntu 11.10 and 12.04 (while maintaining compatibility with Ubuntu releases after 10.04). Please note that this beta has only been tested in 12.04 so we appreciate your feedback in identifying potential issues in other distributions. Issue reports may be filed on the GeoNode issue tracker or reported on the GeoNode user forum.
