Debian Linux 2.6, x86_84
Oracle Java 1.7.0_40, 64-bit Server VM

Binary ZIP and tarball are the same
Source ZIP and tarball are the same
MD5 sums are okay
GPG sigs are okay
Checkstyle is happy
tcnative builds fine, with some "notes"
Unit tests pass (except Tribes, known to fail in my environment)

Quick smoke test on my own web application (no new features e.g.
Websocket are in use) shows no problems (and the hundreds of WARNING
logs are now gone).

Looks good to me.
