Known problems in this beta

Axis with all Developments sometimes we hit problems That need a little more time. One of the is the library-which hört export feature is not working as it should. We have a fix pending but it needs some more work before we can include it. The other known problems is using profiles. With the splitting of skin settings, we hit a small regression That affects users who are using the profile feature. Switching possible will cause your profile to be reset so in case you use this feature we suggest to not upgrade to this version.

We will make sure thesis issues are resolved by the release of final version.
