Hi everyone,

A huge work was done to port crucial fixes (and even more!), and we are
ready for 2.79a Release Candidate now.

Yes, that's right. There are so much things that changed, that we do an
extra steps for corrective release, something we didn't do before.

Full list of changes can be found there:
We will work on a better release page shortly.
