Hi Mario,

We don't upgrade our build environment lightly or frequently, and this 
will be the last such upgrade for FX 8, since we are hitting rampdown 
phase 2 in less than two weeks.

Ordinarily, you should expect to receive more notice for these sort of 
changes, and they should be done as part of a milestone build or similar.
