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.

Our scheduled release date is January 7th.

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

Compared to the previous release candidate, we have fixed:

XO-4 sound output from some apps was previously just noise; this
should now be better (#12366).

Text on the XO-1.5 should no longer have missing 'i' and 'l'
characters (#12354).

The GNOME battery icon is no longer invisible (#12329) and is rendered
cleanly once again on XO-1.75 (#12122).

powerd's network activity detection should work again (#12430).

New XO-4 firmware Q7B10 improves wakeup from suspend and includes some
touchscreen improvements.

Image rotation in Image Viewer works again on XO-1.75 (#12206).
