The sbt team is happy to announce the release of sbt 1.0.0-RC3.
sbt’s release candidates are binary compatible with the final sbt 1.0.0, so this is an excellent time for maintainers of sbt plugins to start cross-building and releasing their plugins for sbt 1 (see the blog post linked below).
If no serious regressions are found by Friday, 11 August 2017, 1.0.0-RC3 will become 1.0.0 final.
