Aha, I must have missed the announcement of the test tar balls and when
they turned into the final release tar balls. Sorry. Where did you
publish the test releases?
It would be nice to at least update the NEWS file with the actual
release date (and hopefully all the new goodies that went in).
Also including at least the list of regressions that Matthias noticed
would be nice (not necessarily in the NEWS file, but in the final
announcement if you sent it out).
