What's the difference between this and the actual release? Since I'm
not a techie, I chose not to be a beta tester; but I've been waiting
for the actual release, which I had heard was happening "in a week or
so". Apparently this still isn't the official release version?
This is the first version that could technically become official. Until
then it's basically just another beta. Although we have hardened users
that test nightly builds which hopefully finds most of the major bugs,
it's only when we let all the beta testers loose on the release
candidate that we discover how reliable it actually is. After a week or
so, we'll decide whether or not it's ready; if it's not, we fix, or more
likely work around, as many bugs as we can and release another candidate
and repeat the process. Eventually (hopefully we run out of bugs before
we get bored of fixing them) we decide to make the latest candidate the
official released version. Any subsequent major bugs will then have to
wait for 2.0.1.
