This is a signed release candidate that can be installed on all XOs,
even those with security enabled.

We're looking for testing and feedback on all aspects of the system.
Thanks for any help you can offer, and for all the feedback that was
received throughout development.

We're hoping to release this as soon as possible, pending some final
issues being worked on.

Please review the "Known problems" section of the release notes. Some
documented issues are carried over from previous releases, but others
are new and are things that we will aim to fix in the time remaining
before release.

Compared to 12.1.0 release candidate 4 (build 17), we have fixed and changed:

Use of sensors in Measure on XO-1.75 has been fixed (#11996).

An occasional hang on shutdown/reboot (commonly seen in runin testing)
has been fixed (#11949), and the runin screen on XO-1.5 is no longer
black for the first two minutes (#11985).
