Over the past two months we've made an impressive number of improvements to the upcoming version of our software, SilverStripe v2.3.0.
Release Candidate 3 is now available. Please help test it and submit bugs. Based on the importance of bugs raised in coming weeks we will either relabel this as a stable version or produce a release candidate 4.
This brings the material up to date for our upcoming version of SilverStripe 2.3.0, and is part of our overall efforts to continually improve our documentation.
