Beta 1

Areas to test

These are the areas where there has been the most significant changes and we'd appreciate a look over. I've also highlighted the appropriate change in the change log below. 

Filtering members in the AdminCP member list, especially using the advanced search options.
If using Elasticsearch: how activity streams are affected by splitting topics (including both moving posts into a new topic and an existing one), especially activity streams which show unread content.
If using Elasticsearch: making sure that going to a very high page number in paginated content (or even beyond the maximum page number) works correctly with nothing logged to the system log. 
Subscriptions in Commerce - especially doing unusual actions (merging two members, deleting a member) when subscriptions are applicable.
Refunding and crediting transactions in Commerce - especially chaining multiple of these actions together.
Private albums in Gallery - especially that moderators with permission can access everything they should be able to access.
Recurring Calendar events, especially created by a member in one timezone and viewed by a member in a different timezone, always shows correctly and recurs at the expected interval.
Matrixes (the tables of checkboxes you see when editing permissions for a group or when defining a tax rate in Commerce, etc.) handle errors correctly.
