Well... yes.  

Most of us (including myself) are already using 2.0 on their servers and
are satisfied with its stability - even though sometimes you still have
to be carefull when performing an update. 

As for an update. There is a simple shell script called ra2ac that can
be used to ease the migration process a bit (after all, there are many
differences between 1.0 and 2.0). 

This page may be heplful:

It is (still) unofficial english translation of our documentation.

Don't worry. We're here, and we're not going anywhere soon :)

That's true. Although we don't release any security advisories, we are
fixing any flaws that are found. We track various security lists in
search for any "news" in that matter.

There are so many new packages build everyday that it would be hard to
create reasonable way of informing users of what's going inside the PLD.
The best method I know, is doing "poldek --up" everyday :)

Ahm, you're right. There were information sent to some lists, but not to
this one. Our mistake.

Well, not exactly. It used to be Polish Linux Distibution some time ago
(more then two years?). Now we are using recursive acronym - PLD stands
for PLD Linux Distribution. 

And as for the news in english. You're absolutetly right. If I have
enough determination, I'll try to work on it after my exams.
