Hi All,

I know you're all very busy, but if you could lend some suggestions to this,
I would appreciate it.  I am not asking for you to write out full-fledged
sentences here, just a brief note or phrase referencing anything that you
would like included in the beta release announcement.  Thanks very much for
your consideration.
