MediaWiki 1.12.0rc1 released

Ok, the release schedule got disrupted with all the busy Wikimedia 
Foundation stuff over the last few months, but we're getting back on 
track with this release candidate for the Winter 2008 quarterly release, 
MediaWiki 1.12.

There's a *lot* of updates, small and large... Perhaps most significant 
is a rewrite of much of the parser, changing how templates and 
extensions are expanded. Among other things, this should ensure that 
complex mixes of templates and HTML tables should render more similarly 
between Wikipedia and default installations of MediaWiki.

For this release candidate, we're very interested to hear back about 
regressions or problems with the installer / updaters. Note that, as 
with most previous releases, you will have to run the updaters to apply 
some database schema updates when you upgrade.
