Release Notes: Habitat 2.0 has now reached alpha and is ready for testing. It sports a new interface based on Gtk 2.x/3 with simplified navigation and is made faster by using client-side data caching. Default storage is now reduced in size by using periodic optimization to remove old data. Functionality and platform coverage will increase as testing continues and the authors shake out the GUI bugs (check the README for the current issues list). The website and documentation have been updated, and there are binaries for Linux. The Alpha is stand alone with peer-to-peer connectivity.
