    Oh please please please release before the weekend! :)

    I lost my way a bit these last weeks, in iRacing and AC. Hugely frustrating sims both of them.
    My love lies with rF2 and a new build would be fantastic!

    ISI Team, I'm wondering why you didn't go once again through the "unstable" release candidate process? AFAIK it was a pretty good move and part of the community was happy to be able to test a version before its "official" release. Perhaps it gave you too much work sorting additional feedbacks and bug reports, and perhaps what was found by community was too much the same than your internal testing team, so not really useful as it gave you more work? Just curious to know your feeling about this...

    Good point! Tim is this so? Maybe we can improve the process to get more benefits ?

    There have been a LOT of RC versions on the MP servers lately, up to 470 now. Hopefully we actually get one soon.

    The build will have to pass (or be close to passing) the internal testing, then unstable, then it will be released. Short answer: no idea.

    I hope that the upcoming build bring some big improvement or some new features, because it has been 2 months since the last update, so they had a plenty of time to work in it!

    The amount of time since a release really bears no indication of anything. Short turnarounds can yield large things, longer ones less things, from a user perspective, at least.

    Additionally, I know it may not be the case everywhere, and it wasn't with me, but some people haven't been at work every day the last two months. https://twitter.com/jeremymmiller/status/414170445428977664

    Silly question: Jeremy said 468 was a release candidate, why would there be an unstable build if RC is being tested?

    Depends what you think a release candidate means. Considering the majority of their testing is done internally, I would take an RC to mean something they're considering giving to us; probably first as an unstable, then if all goes well as a stable.

    Some might think RC means stable, or even a 'final' or '1.0' release (which isn't happening, though I'm sure some people haven't got that yet), in which case the RC might not seem to make sense.

    Does that mean we are closing finalized version of rF2?

    It was said a while back by ISI that in reference to RF2, unstable builds would be odd numbers, stable even numbers. So, we have 468, and now 470 being tested. So I would have assumed an unstable would have been 469 and then released at 470. All the build numbers ive seen on the MP servers are even numbers, aka release candidates.

    Can we stop looking at definitions of terms that are used and trying to make that relevant? There will be no 'final' version of rF2. That has been made clear many times.

    But definitions should not be given officially if they do not mean anything. rF2 is final when they do not work on it anymore, but it not might be finished.

    They haven't given a definition... they said 'release candidate'. Going and quoting Wikipedia's definition of release candidate is completely irrelevant.

    They do internal testing on a number of builds. The current build might be released (as an unstable -> stable) so it's a release candidate.
