I've just released rsync 3.0.0pre3, the second pre-release version
for the upcoming 3.0.0 release.

Please keep up the good work in testing this and sending email to the
rsync mailing list with your questions, comments, bug reports, etc.

This version has the following fixes since pre2 was released:

 - Fixed a problem in the hard-link handling where the generator would
   sometimes die with an assert error.

 - Improved the startup determination for incremental-recursive mode.
   This removes the potential for disagreement, and makes the protocol
   more forward-compatible with future improvements in inc-recursive
   option compatibility.

 - Some symlink-permission improvements, including proper preservation
   of symlink permissions on OS X.

 - I/O errors coming from the sending side are now forwarded to the
   generator in incremental recursive mode.

 - Fixed a bug in the handling of anchored filter rules when rsync is
   copying an absolute path with --relative.

 - Another improvement to the -ii output when hard-linking.

 - Improved the handling of really large files (e.g. 100GB) to avoid a
   hashtable overload that would bog down the sender.

 - Fixed a compile problem on systems without an id_t type.

 - Fixed a compile problem when --disable-iconv was specified.

 - Some manpage improvements.

 - Some fixes to the patches plus some additions.

 - Added an exclude of ".git/" to our default cvs-ignore handling.
