Source code and pkgs for MacPorts 2.8.0-rc1 are now
available [1]. Testing of either of these install methods is helpful.

Be prepared to encounter bugs. As always, having a recent backup would
be wise. Please report any bugs that you find [2] (after first searching
Trac [3], of course!)

If no show-stopping bugs are found in the next few days, this will
become the 2.8.0 release.

There are a large number of changes in this release. See the ChangeLog
[4] for a list of most of them. You may like to focus your testing on
the new features in that list, as well as your normal usage.

Changes since beta1 are:
    * Fixed error when upgrading ports with no cxx_stdlib information in 
the registry.
    * Ensured that SQLite write-ahead logging is enabled on all systems.
