Magic Lantern 2.3 RC1 testing starts!

by planetMitch1 Comment

The geniuses behind magic lantern sent me this yesterday – they've started testing a hot new version – plus they've moved to a new site making things much easier to find and to know what is going on.

It has been a long time since the last stable release and so this is indeed great news.

Bart and Alex are really cranking it!

About the release candidate:

As promised last week, we are very close to the 2.3 release. We'd like to run a release candidate testing first (RC1), so we'll start this today.

As a special gesture to the donors and contributors to the ML project, we would like to thank them by giving them access to the release candidate in the forum section accessible to contributors and supporters. Currently we match donors and forum members by hand, so if we miss any of you, please contact me or Bart via PM.

For providing testing feedback, you will have to complete a small quiz. Your feedback will help us fix any remaining problems and announce a release date for the stable v2.3, which will be available to those who donate at least 10 euro to keep us running. After three weeks, this version will become free for everybody.

ML 2.3 RC1 works on Canon 5D Mark II 2.1.2, 550D 1.0.9, 60D 1.1.1, 600D 1.0.2, 50D 1.0.9 and 500D 1.1.1.

  1. Still wishing for something for the 7D (Stomps feet, holds breath, throws tantrum)….
