Well, RC1 has been out for about six weeks.  The progress has been:

6/28/01 beta5
7/20/01 beta6
8/23/01 beta7
9/27/01 beta8
11/05/01 beta9
11/30/01 beta10
2/17/02 beta11
2/26/02 beta12
4/24/02 RC1

I guess that means RC2 or the stable 0.9.0 should be out "real soon now" 
(TM).  Note that the book still refers to beta10.

If we had a released BLFS, I would agree with waiting and putting the 
updates in the CVS version.  In this case, I'd suggest going ahead with 
RC1 now.  The changes to the stable release should then be minimal.

BTW, I just went through a reinstall to check everything out and the 
changes between beta10 and RC1 are minimal, but most (but not all) of 
the comments in bugzilla are still valid.

P.S.  I will be out of touch for three weeks starting tomorrow morning.
