Note that this version will NOT sync with Joplin Server 1.x, it will only sync with Joplin Server 2.x. In general if you're using Joplin Server, you'll need to update all your apps to v2, however only the desktop app is available as of now (Android app probably quite soon too).

Yes there was something funny going on during the build so it had to be restarted, so it's possible that it uploaded just the checksum but not the AppImage or vice versa. Normally that should be fixed from 2.0.5.
@laurent I can't wait for 2.0, I keep checking for updates. But I don't want to risk damaging my "prod" notes. (My eternal fear: losing or damaging a note, and not noticing until months later. )
I don't intend to waste time with upgrading the Server at all; I'll just do a clean install and re-sync.
Do you think it would be reasonable to download a Portable version of the 2.0 desktop app beta, import notes into it, sync into Server 2.0?
And when the full version is released, upgrading my 'main' client, pointing it to the 2.0 server and re-syncing?
Or am I just overdoing it and asking for trouble like this?
(Yeah, objectively, it's not that important. I'm just cuuuriooooouussss.)
I'm not sure, do you mean you'll delete your main profile and then re-sync from scratch? If so, that would work. But if you have two clients in parallel with different notes and different sync targets, you might indeed be asking for troubles.
Perhaps the way to go is to only use the portable app for some time, then when you feel it works well enough, just copy the portable profile to the main one (overwriting any file) and then you can start using the main one without doing a full sync.
I've tried to build it on my own (with Ubuntu 21.04) but hat several problems especially with Python3 and some npm dependencies. When I finally managed to build a version, installing on my phone (android 10) with pre-installed version 1.8.5. (from play store) failed, on my tablet (android 9) the installation worked but launch failed with the following error message:
