Monix: Version 2.0-RC9 Released

This release fixes a bug in Task.mapBoth and thus the operations depending on it, like Task.gather. It also fixes another bug in the Cats Applicative instance for Task, adding a required overload for running Tasks in parallel when using the applicative builder.

This release also changes the signatures of Task’s sequence, gather and gatherUnordered to use the CanBuildFrom pattern, a contribution by @guersam.

See the published API Documentation.
