FeedbackWe are offering release candidates in order to get more testing against them than we can do by ourselves. This means that we need your testing results as soon as you can report them. Likewise our goal is to address what you are seeing as quickly as possible and get the next release candidate out. It is also useful for you to tell us it works for the platform and compiler tools you were using (of course, tell us what these are ;-)
