The Interchange Development Group is pleased to announce the release
of Interchange 5.8.0.  This release is the culmination of years of work
in the 5.7 development branch, and supercedes Interchange 5.6 as the
preferred stable release.

Changes between 5.6 and this version are too innumerable to list here, but
a full list is available at:


We recommend that all Interchange sites be upgraded to this new version 
after testing in each individual environment. Please read the UPGRADE 
document for information about upgrade procedures and a few incompatible 
changes introduced by this release.
