FileSender 1.5-beta3 available!

On May 15, Xander Jansen announced the availability of the 3rd beta of our upcoming version 1.5. Please help us by field testing it!  If you discover any issues, please report them to our support mailinglist.

This week Xander, Guido and myself are gathered at the 2012 TERENA conference.  We’ll discuss further planning of the 1.5 release, taking into consideration the security audit report we expect to receive tomorrow.  Most likely there will be a beta4.
