[Cython] preparing a release candidate, pending issues

current master looks good enough to plan for a release candidate next week.
There are only a couple of pending issues that I'm aware of that may or may
not get looked into for the release.

One thing is cygdb and its tests - are they working again? They seem to
work for me, but I don't know what the last status was there. Given how
long they must have been broken, it doesn't look all too critical, though.

This one should be resolved now:

"build failure on windows with 0.21b2 windows py27 x64"

This isn't, but the solution isn't currently obvious (and I think it can
wait until the first bugfix release if we can't find a fix in time):

"Buffer dtype mismatch error"

These are open, but don't feel like they should block the release:

"error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol PyInit_init"

"Memory leak with vector of memoryviews"

"how to have hashable extension types in pure python mode ? (__eq__ error)"

This isn't finished but is a new feature which can wait:

"Automatic conversion with fixed-size C arrays"

This hasn't lead anywhere, apparently, but can wait as well:

"OpenMP thread private variable not recognized (bug report + discussion)"

So, nothing critical, but I might have forgotten something. If nothing else
comes up, I'll just wait a couple of more days and then start preparing RC
and final release.
