Thank you to everyone who's toiled over the past few weeks, days and
hours so we could ship RC1 nearly on time. Thanks too to Jason, who
stepped in to do the release itself.

It didn't have everything we had hoped, but there are some fine features
none the less, and it's a solid update.

Hopefully we can wrap this up in time for FOSDEM.

Cheers,
Dom
