Subject: [mapserver-dev] [vote] Call for vote on RFC98

I would like to call for vote on RFC98
http://mapserver.org/development/rfc/ms-rfc-98.html. In addition to the text rendering overhaul, that branch will also pull in the following changes:
- RFC99 GD removal
- Removal of deprecated annotation layers
- added some compiler annotations to warn for unused return values
- added some compiler annotations to indicate likely/unlikely branch conditions (to help the optimizer)
- renamed the WITH_THREADS cmake flag to WITH_THREAD_SAFETY to better indicate its role

There are still a couple of points I would like to address before the
7.0 release (namely cleaner handling of BITMAP fonts (more to come on this later on), and maybe revisiting the font/glyph caching), but in any case the code is usable right away and passes all tests.

I'll start with my +1.
