Do this as soon as possible, so we can fix any issues before the stable release.
Also, DO NOT use this release in production. It's a release candidate,
and may not be stable!
Thanks a ton to everybody who has contributed patches, documentation,
tests, and feedback towards this release! In particular, thanks go to
Marco Pivetta, who did most of the triage leading to the release, and
who reviewed countless contributions, providing feedback as he went.
If all goes well, you can expect to see a stable release in the next 1-2 weeks.
