This release candidate contains new features, bug fixes and improvements. The new features are:
Check out the full list of changes straight from GitHub:

Besides the listed changes we are also modifying the name of our release tarball. We were labeling our release by: "modsecurity-apache_X.Y.Z.tar.gz", since we started to support Nginx, this name became outdated. Now we are labeling it as  "modsecurity-X.Y.Z.tar.gz". For those who are automagically generating packages, it won't be a problem, the old naming policy will be preserved on the modsecurity.org server.

As in the last release, this will be stored in two different servers: modsecurity.org and GitHub. Hashes will be provided for the tarball integrity verification. The release tags are also GPG-Signed.
