What is a Release Candidate?
A release candidate (RC) is a pre-release version of our software that has completed the Beta phase of testing, and is now ready for the final testing prior to general release. All feature and maintenance development is complete, and it has the potential to be a final product. If no major bugs are found, the release will be made public.
We would appreciate if you could take the time to install the RC on your development server and test any and all functionality you find important. Such real-life tests are the most valuable we can get as it allows us to know more precisely how you're utilizing the product, and ultimately provide a level of Quality Control and Assurance that goes beyond what we can simulate in the lab.
As always, please remember that this release is not officially supported and we do not recommend running pre-release software in a production environment.
