Hi guys,

4.1 Beta 2 was already released together with the Security Bulletin on
Wednesday. However, back then we didn't write a proper announcement of
the changes between Beta 1 and Beta 2, so here it is.

Summary of changes:
- Improved Extension Manager by Bernhard Kraft and Karsten Dambekalns:
  * Requires less memory
  * The EM now stores the list of extensions from TER in the database,
    see http://bugs.typo3.org/view.php?id=2615

- Two nice usability enhancements by Ingo Renner:
  * Using <label> tags in tceforms where appropriate to enhance
    usability in the Backend forms
  * Increase length for titles of be_users, be_groups, and fe_groups

- Better getRecordTitle() function by David Brühlmeier:
  * It's now possible to define a "label_userFunc"
  * This makes it possible to e.g. define the label of a "persons" table
    as displayed in the list module to be like "Lastname, Firstname".
    Until now you could only define one field to be the "labelfield".

- More localization of the User>Workspaces module by Marc Wöhlken

- UTF-8 for log files by Martin Kutschker:
  * TYPO3 now logs page paths in UTF-8 if config.stat_apache_niceTitle
    is set to "utf-8" in the TypoScript template Setup.

- A couple of IRRE [1] related fixes and new features by Oliver Hader:
  * Automatic sorting by a "sortby" field (e.g. the title)
  * Possibility to have relations from different parent tables to a
    child table
  * Expanded/collapsed states are saved in the User Config (uc) now

Thanks to all the developers, the teamwork is really fun at the moment!

You can download the packages at http://typo3.org/download/packages/.

Please test this Beta as much as possible, getting feedback is essential
to ensure the quality of the new features. If you're e.g. using IRRE or
any other of the new features in a project of yours already and discover
bugs, please report them immediately to http://bugs.typo3.org/!

For more info on the status of 4.1 projects, see [2]. We're going to
release one more Beta, and then proceed to the RC-phase.

Attached you'll find the full ChangeLog for Beta 2.
