0.3.0 aka Milestone 2 is considered a Tech Preview by upstream. If it
works, it is a _lot_ better and more fun than 0.1.3, but I know of several
machines where it fails to work. In the case of my mother's PC, it
manages to screw up video so badly, you need to reboot the box via
strg-alt-f1 (wait) strg-alt-del or ssh.

I still think 0.3.0 should be put into unstable with a Big Fat Warning,
leaving 0.1.3 as default. It should stay out of testing, though. It is good
enough when you know the risk, but not for making it into the next stable.

If you need help with anything regarding that package, please let me
