Gecko 1.8rc1

We're now locked down for Gecko 1.8rc1 -- the first release candidate of Gecko 1.8. I'd like to urge everyone to download this (in a Camino or Seamonkey branch nightly, or in the Firefox 1.5 release candidate once that's available) and bang on it. Camino testing is especially welcome, since Camino exercises a lot of important embedding code that's not exercised by either Seamonkey or Firefox, but is used by a variety of other apps. If there are stop-ship bugs, we really need to know, and the sooner the better.

I don't really think we'll find many stop-ship issues, though. This is by far the best release candidate we've ever done. It's actually a real release candidate, unlike the previous ones!
