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.

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 few weeks before

XO-4 automatic power management is enabled by default, but this is
still a work in progress. There are still various instabilities which
may make this build feel more unstable than earlier ones. You can
disable automatic power management in sugar's Settings panel to
restore previous behaviour.

Compared to the previous release candidate, we have changed:

Latest wake-on-WLAN fixes for 8787 wireless. The C1 machines should
now have somewhat reliable wake-on-WLAN.

The no-mouse-on-boot problem should be finally resolved (#12101).
Please shout if you see further cases of dead touchpad upon boot.

systemd no longer conflicts with powerd's lid handling (#12504)

olpc-dev-kernel works on XO-1.75 (#12531)

Wikipedia now works when offline (#12479)
