As mentioned last week, -rc8 was the last -rc, and there really isn't any point in delaying the real release any more.
I'm sure we've missed something, and I know we have some regressions pending. At the same time, we do need the coverage of a eral release, and on the whole it looks pretty good. We've fixed a few regressions in the last few days, and there's always 2.6.30.x.
The appended shortlog from 2.6.29-rc8 is not very interesting, but it's about as good as it gets. Not a lot of changes (just 72 non-merges, according to git rev-list), and most of those are pretty small and trivial. We're talking mostly one-liners, with just a couple of them standing out (in fact, just mainly the DPMS handling cleanup in drm_crtc_helper.c)...
