NCP3 Beta2 released

We released beta2 of the NCP3 distribution today. The release notes are here.

As seen in the release notes, we have a new pricing policy for NCP3.

Fee Structure
Starting with this release of NCP3, there will be a small charge for all users of NCP. This is required for security upgrades, and usage of apt-clone functionality.

Developing and maintaining a distribution the size of NCP takes a lot of resources, and we need your help to sponsor continued development of your favourite OpenSolaris distribution.

This change has garnered widespread reaction from the community members.. but I hope the users see why we did this.
