> It's been about 6 weeks since 3.7 Beta 2, and about 8 months since 3.6

> (mostly XSSF and formulas), as well as some improvements (especially 
> to HWPF and XWPF around text extraction and properties). So, as

> The release candidate files are available from:

> (The standard packages of source and binary are under /dist/, while 
> the jars and poms to feed into the maven repo are in /maven/)

> As with all apache release votes, please check that not only does the 
> code work, and no major breakages have occured since the last release, 
> but also that packaging is correct, license headers and notices exist 
> etc.

> For anyone running with the full ooxml-schemas jar (instead of the 
> cut-down poi-ooxml-schemas jar), please not that this beta requires 
> version 1.1, which is the same XSDs but compiled for Java 1.5. You can 
> get this by running the "compile-ooxml-xsds" ant task, or from Maven. 
> Previous POI releases, including POI 3.7 beta 1 ran with the older 
> Java 1.4 compiled versions, but we've now switched.

> Voting to bless the release candidates as the 3.7 beta 3 release will 
> run until Friday 24th September. Please vote:

>  +1 - I support this release
>   0 - I don't object to this release, but I haven't checked it
>  -1 - There's a problem with the release, and that is ....
