Subject: Base 3.15.4-rc1 available

Dear all,

Base 3.15.4-rc1 has been prepared and is available for download and testing. [1] Thanks to the help of additional testers that responded to the call on tech-talk, we were able to fix almost all issues that showed up in -pre1.

However, there is one known issue in -rc1 that we haven't been able to fix yet: In some cases, CA clients that are shutting down are producing core dumps (segmentation faults) and/or show C++ exceptions. This seems to happen in configurations that show duplicate PVs (e.g. multiple network interfaces) when the reverse DNS lookups (number to name) are slow, for clients that have a short life span (e.g. command line caget).

This issue will be fixed before the final 3.15.4 is released, but it is not critical enough to hold up the release candidate.

Thanks a lot to everyone who helped!

Cheers,
~Ralph
