I don't get why you "still" don't get it - the same here applies as it did with the 1.4 "release candidates"

The first "release candidate" isn't actually a candidate for release. There are a bunch of known bugs that need to get fixed before the release, and they won't all get fixed for RC1. However, a whole bunch of stuff has got fixed since the beta release, and that needs testing.

If you're going to be picky, then RC1 should probably be called "beta 2" or something, but it isn't.
