Today I am delighted to announce the availability of our second Ubuntu Accomplishments release: version 0.2. You can read more about the release below, or the impatient among you can install it. You will need to be running Ubuntu 12.04 to use this release (Ubuntu 12.10 packages are being worked on).
Please Note: 0.1 users will need to upgrade to 0.2 as 0.1 is no longer compatible with the validation server. That is the nature of 0.1; it is now dead to us…backwards compatibility will come after we release a 1.0 down the line.
There is a lot that is new in this release, and a lot more maturity and stability. We are also introducing our first release of the Ubuntu Desktop Accomplishments for desktop-related opportunities and trophies. Our Ubuntu Community Accomplishments collection has also been significantly expanded with over 100 opportunities, and full support for Ask Ubuntu badges.
For a full summary of what is new in this release, see this video that I put together:

Thanks to our wonderful team of contributors; I am hugely proud to see that an idea that turned into a spec has developed into a mature application for our community and beyond, and that we are growing a really nice community of contributors.
