We’re happy to announce the second release candidate for Mattermost v0.6.0-alpha, and we plan to ship the final version Friday, August 7, 2015.
While this version is in production use by multiple teams, secured behind VPNs and other safeguards, we’re being conservative and calling v0.6.0 “alpha” and recommending it not be used in production deployments since we can’t guarantee API stability or backwards compatibility.
The number of open bugs is relatively low. That said, we highly appreciate the report of any and all issues: http://www.mattermost.org/filing-issues/.
Also, ask us anything at: http://forum.mattermost.org/
