New version is now in my github and will hopefully be on osm.org before 
too long.

	https://github.com/systemed/potlatch2

Major changes for users:

* Potlatch 2 now requires Flash Player 10.
* The Simple tag editor has been rearranged: fewer tabs, tabs have icons.

Major changes for people running custom instances:

* Simple tag editor changes as above. Icons are currently hard-coded, 
but that'll change.
* Inputs can now be assigned to a subcategory as well as a category. 
This renders as a disclosure panel within a category. This is a great 
place to put lesser-used tags without cluttering up the UI.
* You can now group images by supplying a .zip file, so that P2 doesn't 
ask for eight billion images on every load. To use, supply a Flash 
parameter with the location of the zips and the place they're 
"substituting" for, like this:
	args["assets"] = 
"assets/icons.zip=icons/;assets/features_pois.zip=features/pois/";

Major changes for developers:

* You now need Flex 4.5.x to build 
(http://opensource.adobe.com/wiki/display/flexsdk/Download+Flex+4.5).

And lots of little stuff. Please note that the translation 
infrastructure is still a work-in-progress and moving to Flex 4 throws 
up some new challenges here

Thanks to Andy for huge amounts of work on this.

cheers
Richard
