Will there be another RC?

I have been informed of this problem:

which is basically a potential conflict between Boost.Thread and
Boost.Log on Windows if headers from both libraries are included. In
particular, the problematic header in Boost.Log is
boost/log/utility/permissions.hpp, which is only used for IPC-related

The fix is in develop:

If there is a chance to include it in 1.66, I would like to do it.

If not, could the link to this commit be added to the release notes?
