A new release of the SELinux Reference Policy is now available on the Tresys OSS site, http://oss.tresys.com.  This release reflects the git repository restructuring for core/contrib modules[1].

The complete change log for this release follows at the end of the email.

For people interested in helping Reference Policy development, the X desktop and role separation needs testing, in addition to general testing.
