They went to sea in a Sieve, they did,
In a Sieve they went to sea:
In spite of all their friends could say,
On a winter's morn, on a stormy day,
In a Sieve they went to sea!
And when the Sieve turned round and round,
And everyone cried, "You'll all be drowned!"
They cried aloud, "Our Sieve ain't big,
But we don't care a button, we don't care a fig!
In a Sieve we'll go to sea!"
Far and few, far and few,
(The Jumblies - Edward Lear)

Once it's propagated round the CPAN mirrors I'll make an announcement
I'm particularly interested in
0: binary compatibility between 5.8.2 and modules compiled under 5.8.0
1: binary compatibility between 5.8.2 and modules compiled under 5.8.1
2: how scripts that hash large amounts of data behave
3: reassurance that it still build on Windows, VMS, OS/2, ...
4: whether OS X and Solaris build all XS modules correctly now
5: is modperl still happy
6: does PAR work smoothly
I suspect that I've forgotten something important from that list
will be at RC1 for the next 16 hours or so.
