Reminder: 5.8.0 RC1 Saturday the 1st of June.

This is hopefully the last snapshot before the RC1.  Please switch
your smoke engines into warp speed.  Code patches, be they .c or .xs
or .pm, are by default highly suspect.  Prepare to grovel if you
propose such changes :-)

I have also attached the first draft of the RC1 announcement.

Todo:

(no known showstoppers)

Nice:

- more $^X commentary [PaulG]
- self-tie glob workaround doc [Yitzchak]
- VMS PERLIO=perlio [Craig, NI-S]
- ithreads XS docs [Arthur]
- sporadic lib/Memoize/t/expfile.t failures [mjd]
- any mysterious failures fixed [anyone]

Lost?

- EBCDIC fails few Storable and Data::Dumper tests [Nicholas?]
- AmigaOS build ist kaputt [Jonathan?]
- iPAQ build problems [Tels]

Changes since the last:
