What's new in 2.9.0rc1

This release is a maintenance release containing numerous bugfixes.
The full changelog is at:

* 2.9.0rc1

What's the schedule for the rest of 2.9.0?

Please see the ROADMAP for the schedule of future 2.9.0 releases
leading up to 2.9.0 final:

The 2.9.0rc1 release cycle was a little messy with some bugfixes that
were a little closer to features than normal making their way in.
Despite that, we think that this is a solid release candidate and we
currently don't see any blockers for the 2.9.0 release.

Please test out this release candidate, report any problems that you
encounter, and draw our attention to any that you'd like us to
consider as blockers for the 2.9.0 final release.  The more time we
have to look at a potential blocker, the more likely we'll consider it
a blocker for release rather than something that we will fix in 2.9.1
