Thank you for this announcement, and the efforts that go into making
this work available.

*Especially* thank you for avoiding the oxymoronic “Released: 2.6.3
release candidate” or similar. I hope this signifies a trend toward
using the more accurate term “available” for announcing availability of
anything that's not an actual release.
