#18 Not release candidates

RC1 was definitely not a release candidate, in other words, there was no possibility that the final release version would be identical to RC1, so RC1 was not a candidate for being the final release. This information was clearly available (on this site when RC1 was first posted) and I don't know why you're confused about it.

They may turn into release candidates (I think everyone knew that some fixes would be needed after RC2 as well, but maybe 3 will be a genuine RC), I don't know what the thinking is on that.

(Of course the complaint about 'release candidates' being numbered is pretty silly... and it's clearly *not* going to drag on forever, I agree on that part.)


(noticing that this text box appears to be screwed [I'm using RC2].... very strange, haven't seen textarea problems for a while....)
