A new Islandora 7.x-1.10, Release Candidate 1, Virtual Machine is ready to be downloaded. An updated islandora_vagrant GitHub branch available for cloning. Both waiting for you to start testing.

If you signed up and forgot what you signed up for: Release Sign-up Spreadsheet
If you want to make testing more reliable and systemic: (Thanks so much, Kim Pham++!) Experimental Testing Framework Spreadsheet
Before going crazy testing remember (no need to print, global warming etc)
What to expect: just a working, clean, vanilla Islandora 7.x-1.10 VM RC1 machine. RC1 means there can be bugs, things can misbehave, etc.
What is new?: this VM makes use of recent improvements coming from our DevOps IG's hard work, including a newer version of Tomcat, Solr 4.10.4 (new base box) + other goodies. In our humble opinion, a fuller, richer, more evolved Islandora experience.
