Jack,

It turns out that beta 2 and beta 1 won't install together on the same
machine.  This is due to something that I'd forgotten about how we designed
our MSI installer rollout process.  (The decision that leads to this is
something that I made eight or nine months ago now.)

Beta 2 should be made available, with instructions and a short "what's new"
writeup, tomorrow.

- Peter

Oh cool:

I can install anything before that, without conflict, except perhaps for a
few prior autobuilds, but surely the history on the partners page should
stear me away from conflict.
