We seem to be releasing something every week now, a testament to our tireless developers and input of the community.  Last week, we released 1.6.5, which is still the official stable release at the time of writing.  However, we are closer than ever to a stable release of the 1.7.0 branch, and today we release the third release candidate of 1.7.0 to the wider world.  Among others, there were two pernicious bugs that caused FeatureTypes and coverages to disappear in certain circumstances.  (Yikes!)  No more, though.  In total, there are 19 bug fixes in since RC2, and as usual, we encourage you to test out the latest version.  Will the fourth release candidate be the charm?  Stay tuned.
