In the two weeks since the first Bolt 3 beta, we've been fixing most of the bugs and issues that were reported by people testing out the new release. To keep the momentum going, we've just released Bolt 3 beta 2.

Update: We've fixed a small bug in our packaging script. If you used the .zip or .tgz to update from beta 1 to beta 2, your config files might've been overwritten. This bug has been fixed, and we've uploaded new packages, so this won't happen anymore. (Note: This was only for archive installs, git & Composer installs are unaffected)

A list of the resolved issues and their respective fixes, can be found in the Changelog.
