General messages

Dear Developers,

In case you missed it, 1.7.7 beta 2 has been released last week!

Testing this second beta version before the release of the stable version is very important. As usual, we strongly recommend checking that all your modules and themes are working properly, especially if you develop them yourself. Please download, install and test this new beta and report the issues you might find. Also, of course, your help is welcome to fix issues.
