The first release candidate for the second stable 1.8 release is now
available. A fair bunch of patches went in, most prominently a set of DIR2
fixes. The rest is all over the place but should altogether make for a more
stable experience.

I'm planning to do another RC in about two week's time before tagging 1.8.2
shortly after that.
As a heads-up, the 1.8.2 release will be the last 1.8 stable release I'll
put out, I'm struggling to find the time required to get decent releases
out. If you're interested in taking over, please let me know and I'll help
you out getting started.
