    I am pleased to announce the availability of BLCR 0.7.0_beta1 from
    Both source tarball and SRPM are available.  The filenames and MD5
    checksums are:
        750edf8d3bf0b60cb710972aee1cdb1c  blcr-0.7.0_b1-1.src.rpm
        fe41c1a414233c779e3f391d078b4cdd  blcr-0.7.0_b1.tar.gz
    Relative to the eventual 0.7.0 release, this Beta is lacking a few minor 
    features and I have not updated the NEWS file or HTML documentation 
    (though manpages and comments in libcr.h do reflect all new features). 
    Based on our in-house testing, this release is considered stable (though 
    ARM and PPC64 platforms are still designated as EXPERIMENTAL).
    If you have reported a bug recently, especially if you've been told to 
    expect a fix in 0.7.0, please try out this Beta release and let us know 
    if your problem is fixed and especially if it is not.
    Relative to the 0.6.x release series, BLCR is using a new configure and 
    build mechanism that should work correctly with Xen-enabled kernels and 
    other kernels that were problematic in previous releases.  If you are 
    unable to configure or build this beta on any system where 0.6.x built 
    successfully, PLEASE let us know because the new configure/build 
    mechanism might be at fault.
    There will be at least one more Beta release prior to the full 0.7.0, to 
    include the minor features still not completed and to update the HTML 
    docs and NEWS file.
    You are receiving this either because you are on the checkpoint_at_lbl_dot_gov
    list, because you've recently sent email to the list (or me directly)
    asking about BLCR status, or because our Bugzilla shows your interests 
    in a bug fixed in this beta.
