ANNOUNCE: GHC 7.10.1 Release Candidate 3

As I wrote previously — the bindist name does mention ‘deb7’, so perhaps this is all working as intended, and perhaps supporting such ancient distributions is not actually needed.

However, the GHC 7.8.4, 7.8.3, and 7.8.2 bindists work fine with glibc 2.11, so this is a regression.
