title: Monero GUI Beta 2 Released
summary: The second beta of the Monero GUI is out!
tags: [releases]

*March 29th, 2017*
## Overview
The second beta of the Monero GUI has been released. Due to our focus on completing the features required for the initial release we have not, as yet, completed support for 32-bit Windows, FreeBSD, DragonflyBSD, ARMv7 Linux, and ARMv8 Linux devices. Whilst these are being worked on, it may not be feasible to support some environments (like 32-bit Windows) due to performance degradation.
Download links are at the bottom of this post, and please take note of the known issues and caveats listed below.
To upgrade, just replace your existing GUI with this newer release. Beta 1 wallets will continue to work in beta 2, without any changes required from your side.
## Known Issues
- If the GUI doesn't start on Windows, or starts with a blank screen, then try launch it using the ```start-low-graphics-mode.bat``` batch file.
- The unsigned transaction format, used by cold wallets, may cause issues when moving between platforms (eg. from Linux to Windows) for signing.
- Cold transaction signing does not work with split transactions (sends that are split over multiple transactions).
## Contributors for this Release
This release was the direct result of 50 people who worked, largely unpaid and altruistically, to put out 1202 commits containing 345 646 new lines of code. We'd like to thank them very much for their time and effort. In no particular order they are:

title: Announcing the Monero Celebrity Center
summary: Providing rapid assistance to the heaviest of Monero's users!
tags: [core]
author: Monero Core Team

*April 1st, 2017*
## For Immediate Release
The Monero Core Team is very proud to announce that we have broken ground on the construction of the Monero Celebrity Center in Los Angeles, USA!
For some time we have known that the most relevant of Monero's users, those with the largest number of transactions, are celebrities who are mostly located in the Los Angeles area. We don't know precisely what they're spending Monero on, but we understand their desire for enhanced privacy for certain...purchases...that they make.
It is for this reason that the Monero Core Team have seen to the formation of a special center that caters to these individuals - the artists, politicians, leaders of industry, sports figures and anyone with the power and vision to spend Monero. That center is the Monero Celebrity Center of Los Angeles.
![Interior](/blog/assets/april-fools/2016/inside.jpg)
Build on the banks of the Arroyo Calabasas river, the Monero Celebrity Center will be open 24 hours a day, and will house 420 full time staff to assist celebrities and members of the public with their Monero purchases.

Now one might argue that these individuals already have benefits that many will never have. But, ask any one of them - ask yourself - it can become a lonely world. Subject to the unusual pressures that come with prominence and responsibility, being looked upon under a microscope for good or bad - these are burdens others can't imagine. Not to mention the counter-attack such individuals are subjected to by those less-ambitious who would rather fight to maintain a "status quo" than allow another to attempt a change or improvement.
You see, there's no shame in helping the artist. In fact, in the larger scope of societal help, we had better help the artist if we wish to advance the society at all.
We look forward to welcoming you all to the Monero Celebrity Center as soon as it has been completed!
