Hi all,

I've uploaded release candidates for Cabal- (to be shipped with GHC
7.8) and cabal-install-

You can install the RCs like so:

cabal install

It's especially important that Cabal- gets some testing on OS X

These RCs correspond to commit d310d87c2c445f52987169a2ce4da03c14070918 on
the 1.18 branch in the cabal repo [1]. Note that both Cabal and
cabal-install are released from the same repo. If you want to check which
commits are new since last release run:

git log Cabal-v1.18.1.2.. -- Cabal/
git log cabal-install-v1.18.0.2 -- cabal-install/

-- Johan
