We are pleased to announce the availability of Slurm version 
17.11.0-0rc3 (release candidate 3).

The release candidate series reflects the end of feature development for 
each release, the finalization of the RPC layer, and will - except for 
bug fixes developed during the RC time frame - will be functionally 
identical to the 17.11.0 release when made available.

Please install and test this to help find any issues during the rc stage 
before the 17.11.0 release at the end of November.

Slurm can be downloaded from https://www.schedmd.com/downloads.php
