So, 4.15.0 alpha had some rough edges such as crashing and burning in 
the new multithreaded package generation code due to a missing critical 
section and sometimes failing builds trying to kill a non-existent 
process, but hey, that what alphas are for.

The beta should be much smoother, but knock wood. There's not a whole 
lot of changes since alpha, very much on purpose. Highlights include:
- actually, you know, works...
- new %dnl macro primitive for commenting
- support for gcc -g3 level debuginfo
- ban unprintable ASCII control characters in filenames

As usual, details and download info at:


FYI, we expect 4.15.0 to reach release candidate(s) stage during the 
first weeks of August.
