Bwahahaha... I mean, um, no.  But I did just add a release note for it
that will make it to the Web only release notes.  (Our release notes
always state at the top that the latest version should be consulted on
the Web, so people with discs aren't stuck with only what made it to the
spins.)  Events like this are why we freed up the Beats weeks ago so
anyone could edit them, though.  Hopefully that will get more people
proactively involved, even if only for F8 and beyond.
