Hi cocotb enthusiasts,

The first release candidate of the next version of cocotb, cocotb 
1.5.0rc1 is available for testing.

You can download this version from PyPi as usual, e.g. with

pip3 install --upgrade "cocotb==1.5.0rc1"

Go to https://docs.cocotb.org/en/latest/install.html for full 
installation instructions.

Please go and test this pre-release with your code and in your 
environment. Cocotb works with many simulators in many environments, 
many of which we don't even have access to.

If you experience problems with this release, please file an issue at 

Release notes can be found at 
https://docs.cocotb.org/en/latest/release_notes.html. The 1.5.0 release 
will contain a huge amount of changes which have been developed over the 
last half year. I'm sure the release notes will have something good in 
there for all of you.

If nothing unexpected comes up in testing we plan to release the final 
version of cocotb 1.5.0 within the next two weeks.
