General messages

Dear developers,

As announced on Release tracking issue, it has been decided to issue a second beta build that contains all fixes merged since Beta 1. Over 130 PRs have been merged to branch 1.7.7.x and we want to provide the community with a more up to date version to continue testing, while giving ourselves more time to continue squashing bugs.

We’re targeting a Beta 2 to be released on September 1st. This will be followed by an RC early October at the latest.
