I've just released rsync 3.0.0pre5, the latest pre-release version of
the upcoming 3.0.0 release.

Things are progressing well in our efforts to stamp out bugs for the
final 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.  Thanks!

This version has the following fixes since pre4 was released:

 - Output a "(DRY RUN)" suffix on the last line of the verbose
   summary when in --dry-run mode.

 - Fixed a problem with copying multiple mount-point directories
   when --one-file-system was specified.

 - The --copy-dest code makes it local-copy update to a temp file
   when --inplace was not specified.

 - Fixed a glitch when --copy-dest was combined with --dry-run.

 - Made some improvements in the parsing of "untidy" paths in
   --recursive mode.

 - Fixed a potential hang when --hard-links mode was copying a
   large directory structure with few (or no) files.

 - Fixed a problem with -vvv (or greater) output causing an
   inc-recursive run to terminate.

 - Stopped password-file errors from making rsync output that a file
   transfer was incomplete.

 - Avoid hard-linking devices together if their preserved mtime differs.

 - Replaced the lib/getaddrinfo.c code.
