Hi all,

This is a follow-up to my original mailing list post[1], announcing
a new beta series for kbs2[2]. The changelog is also available[3].

In particular, this release includes:

* Use of the latest (0.5) rage release (many thanks to str4d), which performs significantly better
in (my) debug builds.

* An agent-daemon architecture for persisting age keys, replacing the original POSIX shm hack.

* Support for an `error-hook` hook, which can be used to execute a notification script
whenever a `kbs2` command fails.

Testing and feedback are greatly appreciated! For non-testing use: please keep in mind that kbs2 is
still an early-stage project and might contain egregious security or compatibility-breaking bugs.

Best,
William
