I was dreading the upgrade from RC5 to RC7, after seeing all the problems other people had been having over the last day or two, but I'm pleased to say it seems to have worked perfectly at the first attempt.

I used the "changed files" option & working slowly (to make sure I did everything correctly) it was completed within about 30 minutes.

Have to agree that I was a bit worried as well, but I have just upgraded (5->7) using the ftp option and no probs at all.

I was going nuts from RC6, but update from RC5 to RC7 went like a charm, and I still am able to use my MODs :)

Thanks, devs! I'm a complete forum novice, but the transition from RC5 to RC7 went perfectly.

It would have been nice if some major game releases had as many RC's before going "gold". ;)

Kellanved wrote:As a software engineer, I have to wonder about that statement. We had significant regression, which requires a prolonged RC phase. More than 5 RCs can happen, they happen in open source a lot, they also happen in the "real" world. The software was just not ready, community unstable releases are our main means of getting feedback about issues (sadly ,there are now very few CVS users).

We will make significant changes to our QA in the near future.
I'm a software engineer also. Not for OS, purely custom built commercial applications.

My main point was since the release of rc1 there have been 360+ changes/features/fixes. Each of these could have involved multiple files (5-20 on average looking through statcvs).

While i'd be happy if these changes were in an extended beta phase, i don't think its appropriate for a RC cycle.

RC means "i think its done, please make sure we havent missed anything".

Using the current versioning the RC1 should have been released around version RC5 or even RC7.

I'm not taking anything away from the great job that just has been done, i just purely think the decision to change to the RC phase seems with all these changes to be a political/marketing one rather than a functional/technical one.

While to some people it may be just "a name", they do have differing meanings, especially for someone in the field.

"RC" here means that support is offered, while there was no/limited support for the betas.

Well done guys, regardless of how many RCs there are at least your keeping on top of things and not just walking away and leaving problems for users. Great software and yeah, when it says on the tin RC and unstable, thats what it means.

There are too many semantics on this board.
Nitpicking the definitions of "RC", "BETA", etc isnt going to do a thing to help the devs get this software to gold.
All its doing, in my opinion, is making a few posters seem like they whine and complain about everything....including FREE software that is costing them nothing.
