With the very latest great news – Ubuntu GNOME 14.04 will be an LTS release supported for 3 years – and with the great commitment of Ubuntu GNOME Team and the high quality that everyone showed for the last 5 months, we do need to carry on and keep up the great work. We have achieved a lot and less than a month to go to the final release and the very first LTS version of Ubuntu GNOME. The hard work has just started. Beta 2 or the final beta means this is what Ubuntu GNOME 14.04 LTS final release will look like, at least 90% or even more.
If you take a look at the Release Schedule Wiki Page, you will notice that there will be no more new features or any kind of changes to be done. At this stage/phase, it is mainly heavy testing and bugs fixing.
From today until 17th of April, 2014 (the date of the final release), we do need to make sure that Ubuntu GNOME 14.04 LTS will be solid and stable as a rock. Thus, we do need your help and support.
Final Beta or Beta 2 is not yet released. It will be released in 27th of March, 2014 but we must start testing from now and be ready.

Where else I could ask for some help?
Beside the mailing list of Ubuntu GNOME QA Team and Ubuntu GNOME IRC Channel, you can always post on Ubuntu Forums. There is a dedicated section for testing. However, please pay attention to:
This forum is for the discussion of the development of the next version of Ubuntu. Please Note: Ubuntu Developers do not usually read the forums, If you run into what you think is a bug, please use Launchpad to report it.
For anything else, please feel free to contact us.
Thank you for testing Ubuntu GNOME and helping us. We highly appreciate and respect that.
