Hi Rui,

3.1 won't be a revolutionary release ( saving that for 4.0 ), but rather
a maintenance release in the 3 series...

The most important new features are double precision assembly loops
in SSE2, Altivec assembly loops for PowerPC, Large File support (>2GB),
more compilers supported, and additional bugs ironed out.

Learning from some of the irritating minor bugs in the first 3.0 release,
will probably release a public beta shortly, and then it will be released
minute we've fixed the remaining bugs and problems.

We'll provide rpms, so it will be trivial to upgrade from 3.0.x.
