I've just released rsync 3.0.0pre9.  We needed one last bug-fix release
prior to the 3.0.0 final release, so here it is.  I'm not anticipating
any large changes prior to that milestone.  Please help to test it to
ensure that we're ready to go!  Send email to the rsync mailing list
with your questions, comments, bug reports, etc.
