The fourth release candidate of 6.0 is now available for download and 
testing. 6.0-RC4 (Release Candidate #4) is a pre-release of 6.0, and we 
hope that the 6.0 final release will follow closely in its footsteps. 


We'd appreciate additional testers to help us verify no additional major 
bugs or issues exist in the 6.0 codebase. Over the last few months, our 
team of volunteer developers has been diligently resolving known major 
issues that stand in the way of a 6.0 final release. We believe the 6.0 
release is nearly production-ready, but could use your help in verifying 
there's nothing we've overlooked.

Assuming our final tests validate the stability of 6.0-RC4, we anticipate 
that the 6.0 final release will be made available within the next week or 
so (i.e. mid-to-late October).

If you notice any bugs or issues with 6.0-RC4, please report them 
immediately to our issue tracker (https://jira.duraspace.org/browse/DS).  
As always, we are also available to answer questions on our DSpace Tech 
Support list (https://groups.google.com/d/forum/dspace-tech) or #dspace IRC 
(https://wiki.duraspace.org/display/DSPACE/IRC).

Thanks!
