WiX v3.9 release candidate 2

Update: WiX v3.9 RC3 has been released.

WiX v3.9 RC2 has been released and is ready for you to download and test. Right now, no additional changes are expected before we release WiX v3.9. But we would take a fix to a serious-enough bug – so please help root them out if they exist. Download, try it out, and report any bugs you find.

Here are the changes since the unnumbered release candidate:
