We are pleased to announce the release of our first release candidate for the 3.0 version of Xibo. The codename for this version is “Finlay”.
15P/Finlay is a periodic comet with an orbital period of 6.51a (Julian years). William Henry Finlay (Royal Observatory, Cape of Good Hope, South Africa) discovered the comet on September 26, 1886. It's last closest approach to the sun was in December 2014 and is on it's way back in July 2021.
We'd love for you to test our new release candidate! If you do, please keep in mind that it is a release candidate only and should not be used in production. You can upgrade to this release from 2.x series.

We're going to be hard at work testing this new release candidate and the new windows player to ensure its up to our standards. We might put out a second release candidate to fix issues, or go straight to a stable 3.0.0.
We will also be working to bring this release candidate to our Cloud platform.
v3.0 is shaping up to be an exciting release and we're pleased that it will arrive before Finlay makes its closest approach to the sun in 7 years!
