Who will be first to acquire an ISO and test the new system?

Great. I'll have to hurry and buy a Christmas tree. I will check if I can find some leftover chocolate bunnies.

Looks as if the Arca Noae main server has not been updated (or: upgraded?) to handle the expected traffic :( . Apparently that is not included in the "steps to upgrade our infrastructure", although everybody must log in on that server in order to be able to click on the upgrade button.

Upgrading from 5.08 on my T500 went smoothly.

Is there anything in it that is a 'must have' option?

I am an 83 year old that has been using OS/2 since I first got a copy of OS/2 v1.20 in 1989 and I don't like surprises so I'm asking those that have this new version - what, is any, is the advantage of getting this new version remembering that I have v5.0.7 working very well on my third generation Ryzen processor box and doing all I want.
The only thing I would like to see is an updated version of Firefox esr as that would allow me to run just OS/2 without having Linux Mint up and running on another box.

Well the server seems to be down I cannot get to the site at all. Will just have to wait.

PHP problems, the site should be regularly restarted now.

It was, but not enough to handle the unexpected number of users.

That depends on what you mean by 'must have'. If you are happy with what you have, probably not (and I understand that there will be a 5.0.9 release). The biggies are:
  • Better support foe DOS/WinOS2.
  • Support to run on modern (EFI) hardware. (required for the DOS/WinOS2 support).
There are more things, but most are included in the 5.0.x updates. If you don't need those things, installing 5.1 will not do much different than installing 5.0.8 will do.

I like the GPT support. I find MBR support comes with a long list of issue's if you want to support multi boot.
GPT from my perspective is easier.

Since the annoncement, the site is unresponding (tried many many many... times !)
Or could the new "autoritary" Digital Service Act (DSA) impact  responstime ?

Yes, most likely everybody wants that. It would be better to just wait a day, so that the load on the site can subside.
