Just a brief note from the front lines - I recompiled a heavily threaded
program with (a recent pre-release) of 7.8.1 and got a 10% performance
increase over 7.6.3.  Nothing like free lunches - so thanks again for
the great work!

If I haven't seen further, it is by standing in the footprints of giants
