We're pleased to announce the next release candidate of our new 13.1.0
software release.

Information and installation instructions can be found here:

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

This build had previously been released (and is unchanged) for XO-4,
now we add the other laptop models to the mix and declare it a release
candidate. It is likely that this build will become 13.1.0 final
within a few days.

We're looking for any final 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.

Changes since the previous release candidate:

Write-87 fixes collaboration (SL#4436)

Simultaneous audio recording/playback should be working now (#12606).
The Distance activity is working.

Wireless 8787 power saving is disabled, matching 8686. Solves some
unreliability issues with collaboration.

XO-4 automatic power management is disabled by default. We are still
battling some stability issues with suspend/resume and wakeups. This
will be addressed in a future release.

The new "siv120d" camera often found in the XO-1.75 and XO-4 now works
when installed in the XO-1.5 and XO-1 (#11611, #12623)
