+  Tor marks the fourth -- and hopefully last -- release
+  candidate for the 0.2.1.x series. It lays the groundwork for further
+  client performance improvements, and also fixes a big bug with directory
+  authorities that were causing them to assign Guard and Stable flags
+  poorly.
+  The Windows bundles also finally include the geoip database that we
+  thought we'd been shipping since 0.2.0.x (oops), and the OS X bundles
+  should actually install Torbutton rather than giving you a cryptic
+  failure message (oops).

+  Tor marks the second release candidate for the 0.2.1.x
+  series. It fixes a major bug on fast exit relays, as well as a variety

   o Major bugfixes (on 0.2.0.x):
     - Fix a timing-dependent, allocator-dependent, DNS-related crash bug
       that would occur on some exit nodes when DNS failures and timeouts
