We continue to be painfully close to getting B2 out, I thought it might make it today but we had some testing left to do, plus plus I made a bit of a boo boo :D in using a php 5.3 function when we are supporting back to 5.1 for the initial release. 

I'd expect and "official" B2 in the next few days but what is in github right now is it AFAIK as of right now.  There is a bit of a discussion on whats different in B2 from B1 here http://www.elkarte.net/community/index.php?topic=844 although we fixed and updated more than that list show, or it sure feels like it !

Squish squish. squish, squish, squish.
Find a bug,
Make a wish.

Thanks @Spuds . I downloaded the Github zip file yesterday. Thought of installing it in WAMP. But since official beta 2 is coming soon, will wait for it.

Even though I discovered yesterday on one host I'm able to go up to php 5.5, on another one I'm using I'm currently stick to 5.3 and I cannot change it. It's an Italian rather cheap host, though I can imagine there are "few" around in that same conditions. 5.3 could be a possible version in the "close future", but 5.4 looks like a "in a couple of years" thing to me (personal opinion).

But since official beta 2 is coming soon, will wait for it.
Unless of unexpected events of very big magnitude, the idea is not to change anything in the database structure once released the first beta, and so any "upgrade" from any beta and the final version should just be a replacement of the files.

That is really good. I would give the downloaded zip file a try. Thanks for explaining :)
