We're extremely excited to announce the availability of RT 4.2.0rc2 -
the second release candidate for the next major version of RT.

We would be thrilled to hear your experiences installing or upgrading to
this release; the more feedback we get, the sooner the official release
of RT 4.2.0 can occur.  Bear in mind that reports of successful installs
and upgrades are just as important as reports of issues.

Please be sure to review the upgrading documentation available in
docs/UPGRADING-4.2, as there are a number of backward-incompatible
changes that come along with the new version number.  Upgrading
documentation is also available here:
