RE: 5.8.0 release candidate status
Message ID:
to add a data pt, I had good sucess w/ RC1 (circa 01-Jun-2002)

Alpha VMS V7.3, CC 6.5, TCP/IP V5.3, all tests successful.

I also rebuilt about 37 extensions w/ no troubles.
And building the extensions was easier than 5.6.x, since rather 
more modules ship with 5.8.0 from the factory/out of the box, 
so to speak.

Subject: 5.8.0 release candidate status

Thanks to those who have been testing RC1.  Some problems that have come up 
have been resolved but there is room for a lot more testing.  Release 
candidate 2 should be out in a couple more days, but if anyone can fit in a 
test build (please do), there is a snapshot available today from any of the 
following URLs:
