Hi all,

Bryan and I have spent the evening preparing and testing Cabal and
cabal-install release candidates. We've tested the releases with the
last 3 GHC release, on Linux, OS X, and Windows and using a largish
set of commonly used packages (about 136 of them). If you'd like to
help out with the testing, install the release candidates and then
build your favorite packages in configurations you care about (e.g.
with profiling enabled). To install the release candidates run:

    cabal install

Unless there are any issues, we'll make a release in the next few days.

P.S. Don't miss the new -j option for building stuff in parallel.
