The Second VPHAS data release (DR2) covers the first 21 months of data-taking in which the survey progressed to 24 percent completion. Much of the Galactic mid-plane is now covered (especially in the r, i and Hα filters). This images release supersedes DR1. The full description of the catalogue, including a discussion of how the catalogue was made and advice on best use of the data, is available as file vphas-dr2-desc.pdf (ftp://cdsarc.u-strasbg.fr/pub/cats/II/341/vphas-dr2-desc.pdf). The current photometric scale is linked to APASS in g, r and i, while the u and Hα bands are calibrated by local offsetting from g and r.
