The Linux From Scratch community announces the release of LFS Version 
7.8-rc1. It is a preliminary release of LFS-7.8. Major changes include 
toolchain updates to binutils-2.25.1, glibc-2.22, and gcc-5.2.0. In 
total, 30 packages were updated since the last release. Changes to the 
text have also been made throughout the book. The linux kernel has also 
been updated to version 4.2.

We encourage all users to read through this release of the book and test 
the instructions so that we can make the final release as good as possible.

Please direct any comments about this release to the LFS development 
team at lfs-dev at linuxfromscratch.org. Please note that registration for 
the lfs-dev mailing list is required to avoid junk email.
