Ximian Evolution 1.0 Release Candidate 2

Nov 19, 2001, 23:33 (15 Talkback[s])
From: Ettore Perazzoli
Date: 19 Nov 2001 15:48:22 -0500

A new 1.0 Release Candidate for Evolution hit the wires today.  Thanks
to the help of the several users who tested the first Release
Candidate and reported bugs about it, this release fixes all the major
known problems and is really close to being "the" 1.0 release.

Despite the impending 1.0 release, you shouldn't stop looking for
bugs.  If you find a problem, we still want to know about it!  You can
submit a bug report at http://bugzilla.ximian.com or with the GNOME
Bug Report tool (Programs->Utilities ->Bug Buddy).  Prizes will be
awarded to those reporting the nastiest and strangest bugs, and of
course for the greatest number of reports.

Every Thursday, developers and users of Evolution gather to find,
isolate, and destroy bugs.  To participate, open your IRC client and
visit the #evobugs channel, located on the irc.gnome.org/ server.
Ximian QA master Luis Villa will be in attendance between 9 AM and 9
PM Eastern Standard Time.
