Riak Users,

First off, sorry for the lack of updates on the RC front for a while, but
we've been busy testing Riak prepping for 1.3 release.  Today we'd like to
make available RC4 for your viewing / testing / benchmarking pleasure.  The
last public RC I sent out was RC2, so what happened to RC3?  RC3 had some
performance tweaks we were testing internally so I didn't bother sending
that out if 99.9% of users would not have noticed any difference.  Below
are the changes to RC4.  If you are a eleveldb backend user, you should see
quite a large performance bump if you tried out 1.3.0 RC1 or RC2.


   - Several performance changes to eleveldb backend
   - riak/274: Riak fails to start on a single CPU
machine<https://github.com/basho/riak/issues/274>
   - bitcask/76: Make Bitcask I/O mode configurable: Erlang vs
NIF<https://github.com/basho/bitcask/pull/76>
   - bitcask/77: Change default Bitcask I/O mode to
Erlang<https://github.com/basho/bitcask/pull/77>
   - riak_control/53: style.css file missing from some
packages<https://github.com/basho/riak_control/pull/53>
   - riak_kv/482: Randomize the LevelDB write_buffer_size used for
AAE<https://github.com/basho/riak_kv/pull/482>
   - riak_kv/483: Improve AAE backpressure on K/V vnode
write-path<https://github.com/basho/riak_kv/pull/483>
   - riak_kv/486: Make AAE default to 'off' when not
configured<https://github.com/basho/riak_kv/pull/486>
