I'm pleased to announce the immediate availability of rt 2.0.9pre5.  This 
release contains everything currently planned for 2.0.9.  I'm currently running
it in production and it seems fairly happy. I'd love to hear how others fare.
I'm currently planning to roll 2.0.9 early next week, without any major changes
unless, of course, anyone discovers a catastrophic bug.

There's a lot of great new stuff in this release that I'm sure many of you
will be excited by.  Read on to find out what's new.
