Hello everyone,

Tarballs for the first release candidate for Nova 2012.1 (codenamed

Unless release-critical issues are found that warrant a release

version. You are therefore strongly encouraged to test and validate it.

You should test the tarballs above, but you also can directly use the
milestone-proposed branch at:


Packages for various distributions should follow shortly.

and tag it "essex-rc-potential" to bring it to Vish's attention.

Note that the "master" branch of Nova is now open for Folsom
development, feature freeze restrictions no longer apply.
