Hi folks,

Please find below the draft announcement for the 8.04 beta.  Comments,
fixes, and suggestions are all welcome.

I'm still in the process of fishing for highlights from the teams for the
variants; and the mirror list will need to be refreshed closer to the time
of the beta; but this is generally open for comments.

The canonical location of this draft as we incorporate fixes is on the wiki
at <https://wiki.ubuntu.com/IntrepidIbex/BetaAnnouncement>.
