Hi everyone - if you have any chance of installing the TL pretest and
trying it out on your documents, please do!

Every year for a while there have been one or two major bugs that aren't
found before the release, thus necessitating quick rebuilds. It would be
nice if we didn't have that happen this year. There is no other way than
to have as many people as possible try the pretest. You can throw away
the entire pretest directory after the release is made, all TL
installations are independent.

The freebsd binaries are not yet updated, but all other platforms have been.

Please report any problems, and thanks,
