No, we haven't.

An archive check is running as I type, that's the easy part. However, the 
results need to be checked, and even though Niels already volunteered to 
take a look, I expect the diff to be quite big.

More eyes, and hands, are welcome; installing the RC and starting with one's 
packages would be great.
