Because the main focus of 3.0.0 is NUMA we did not announce any release 
candidates but there were several snapshots. These were marked as 2.6.0 
snapshots. We have been working closely with COSMOS at Cambridge, HLRN, 
SGI and a few other sites who have had 3.0.0 in production since late 
last summer. Other than NUMA and the multi-mom feature there is nothing 
different about 3.0.0 and 2.5.3. Of course the multi-mom feature does 
make it incompatible with earlier versions.
