It is now less than a month to the R9C release. The code is frozen but
we are still doing some testing, adding some missing documentation and
release notes.

We try to release the OpenSource version at the same time or closely
after the commercial R9C release. To make this release as portable as
possible we need your help in building and verifiying the source
before we release the OpenSouce R9C-0.

We are doing some corrections in the make files so there may be
snapshots that don't build but most of them should build without
problems.

Note that in R9C you can build the Windows binary from source.
You need Microsoft Visual C++ and some free tools like Cygwin.
The Windows build instructions are in "$SRCROOT/README.win32".

The snapshots can be found at

Please let us know if there are problems that you think is important
to correct before the R9C release,

The OTP team
