A complete list of changes as always can be found in the git commit
logs.  I'd also like to thank the following individuals for their
contributions to this release candidate:

  Alejandro R. SedeƱo
  Aniruddha Shankar
  Darik Horn
  Fajar A. Nugraha
  Gunnar Beutner
  Jean-Michel Bruenn
  Richard Laager

Finally, I have started using the newly introduced milestones on the
Github issue tracker.  Since there are still a dozen or so known bugs
outstanding there will be at least one more release candidate.  You can
follow the progress of the 0.6.0-rc5 release candidate here:


Additionally, longer term milestones have been created as a tentative
road map.  This should give you a good idea when certain features are
planned to be implemented.  The due dates are fictional, but the more
help we get from the community the faster things will get done.
