What is the current status of CLI2?

I agree with Niall that we should try to get a release out, and I am 
willing to help. Jira says that there are 3 issues for affected version 
= 2.0. Not sure whether this selects all bugs related to CLI2.

Egge, but Henry reported that it causes another test to fail.
