The OpenAFS Guardians are happy to announce the availability of the fifth
prerelease candidate of OpenAFS 1.8.0.
Source files can be accessed via the web at:

        https://www.openafs.org/release/openafs-1.8.0pre5.html

or via AFS at:

        UNIX: /afs/grand.central.org/software/openafs/candidate/1.8.0pre5/
        UNC: \\/afs\grand.central.org\software\openafs\candidate\1.8.0pre5\

The changes since beta 4 include some cleanup of ubik behavior to
avoid transactions that we know will fail, improving the RedHat
packaging, fixing a rare deadlock on old Linux kernel versions,
partially fixing a deadlock on Solaris, improving compatibility with
glibc 2.26, some debugging aids for Solaris clients, improvements to
FreeBSD support, and excluding RXGEN_OPCODE aborts from the
threshold towards throttling misbehaving clients of the fileserver.

This is a release candidate for the final version of 1.8.0.

Please assist the guardians by deploying and testing this release and
providing positive or negative feedback.  Bug reports should be filed
to openafs-b...@openafs.org ; reports of successes should be sent to
openafs-info@openafs.org.
