This is the end of the 3.0.1 release cycle. The build was announced in IRC about eight hours ago, but since I took a long nap in the meantime I never posted to sage-devel ;)
Gary's pbuild has been improved and three bugs have been fixed. Please try it out again for feedback. To use pbuild
before building Sage. The number of threads used during the build of the Sage library is set via SAGE_BUILD_THREADS, i.e.
for eight threads. Switching between pbuild and normal build is not possible in all cases, so in case of problems nuke the build directory on devel/sage.
Things should "just work" in this release [famous last words], but there are some reported oddities with pexpect behaving badly. We have so far been unable to reproduce and of those issue on a local system [Gary claims testdoc.py hangs for him on sage.math - but it doesn't for me], so if you see anything please let us know.
Sources and binaries are in the usual place. This is the end of the release cycle. A handful more patches are planned for 3.0.1.final. Anything non-blocker will be considered for 3.0.2.
