More or less in planned schedule, here goes 4.17.0-rc1. If all goes well 
this will be renamed to final in couple of weeks time, in any case only 
regression fixes will be considered from here on.

Perhaps the biggest highlight in this RC is how little has changed since 
beta. Which is of course how it should be, but can hard to stick to. 
Other than that, the highlights since beta1 area:

  * Fix pandoc being unintentionally required for building from tarball
  * Added dbus-announce plugin
  * Multiple (old) resource leaks fixed as found by Coverity

As usual, download info & further details at
