We wanted to let you know that we have just released a beta 2 of Clearspace 1.7. The Clearspace 1.7 beta has a great new UI for threaded discussions, a new 'photo' profile field type, and the ability to consume OpenSearch-compatible search services. You can learn more about Clearspace 1.7 from our earlier blog post.
Just a reminder: please don't use these beta releases in production, and please don't upgrade your production instances to the beta releases. Instead, install the beta as a new installation or use a copy of your production system to try out the beta upgrade. We don't officially support the betas, but would love to get your feedback on them in Jivespace
