This is a very shortened list of changes for this new version. You can get the complete list and learn more here.
Why the next version is a 6.0?
Until september, the version had been named 5.1. Nonetheless, considering the architectural changes we introduced and the amount of refactoring, we decided to change it to 6.0
Why do we release a beta?
We have already made nightly builds (with an alpha-* version) of the 6.0 branch since 5.0 was released. For us, the public release of a beta is a way to start gathering feedback from outside the dev team. This is the first step in the release process, which will fix bugs and polish the features through the beta and rc cycles. We therefore encourage you to test the beta to help us to stabilize and release RUDDER 6.0!
