Dear all,

I have just tagged Flint 2.6.0-rc1 on GitHub [1], where tarballs are
now available to download and try out.

If there are no further bug reports by this Friday 29 May 2020 the
final release of flint-2.6.0 will be made.

Please report bugs on our GitHub issues and successful builds here.

This is now a final opportunity for everyone, including end users, to
report any issues before the final release (hopefully) on Friday.

Note that Flint now has new online sphinx documentation [3].

Contributors have been updated on our website [4], however we will
acknowledge contributors to this release when the final release
announcement is made on Friday and final release tarballs are put on
the website.

Please note that the soname will not be incremented for the final
release. It has already been incremented for 2.6.0 in anticipation of
the release.

The only tasks that remain for the release are:

* further updating of our website
* Windows MSVC solution file documentation
* release announcement

Please note that the flint-2.5 branch in our repository is now
defunct. All backporting from trunk will now occur on flint-2.6.

Bill.

Dear all,

I've tagged Flint 2.6.0-rc3 [2]. The new changes are:

* better support for old version of MSVC (fix some prototypes)
* support for building Flint without pthreads (only useful for old platforms)
* add const to some mpoly functions

As these are not considered serious problems, the release is still
scheduled for Monday.

Bill.
