While the 3.3.7 RC1 looked promising, a few more issues turned up
meanwhile, so I am releasing an RC2 aswell. With the credits section of
the NEWS file being longer than the list of fixes, my hope is that the
3.3.7 final release (due october 31) will not be much more than a
version bump.

As usual, testing this release candidate and reporting any and all
issues found with it - be those regressions or anything else - would be
greatly appreciated!

The current state of the NEWS file is included below, and if anyone
wants to track how the release is progressing and what needs to be fixed
still before the final release, see the 3.3.7 target milestone on


The release is available from the following sources:


 The release is tagged as v3.3.6.91 on the official repository at
