I'm pleased to announce the first "alpha" test release of RT 3.0, RT 2.1.48.

This release contains the complete new isntallation system complete with 
autoconf support and rewritten testdeps and database setup tools.

This release is NOT ready for production use (hence the "alpha" designation.)
Do not deploy this system for mission critical data. We can not guarantee that
things won't change incompatibly before 3.0.0, though at this point, the schema 
and API are largely frozen.

RT 3.0 is a major new release of RT which adds too many new features to list 
here. A few hilights include:

	* Completely redesigned ACL system that's faster and more flexible
	* Rights granted to a user can be redelegated to another user
	* The "scrips" system is a good deal more flexible
	* Groups can now contain other groups, in addition to containing users
	* RT now speaks: Traditional Chinese, German,
	  French, Spanish, Portuguese, Czech, Russian and Finnish in addition 
	  to English. (Simplified Chinese was not included in this
	  release, due to a last minute error.)

We know that not everything is done yet. Particularly:

	* The new CLI isn't yet complete.
	* The new mail gateway isn't yet complete.
	* The commandline admin tool hasn't yet been updated for all of 
	  3.0's new features.
	* Some edges are still rough
	* Not all bug fixes from the 2.0 branch have been "pulled up" into 
	  the RT 3.0 branch yet.
