We’re only a few days away from the official launch of Jaunty Jackalope, but for those early-birds who really can’t wait, the first (and likely only) release candidate has just been released.

This pre-release packs in newer bug fixes, stability issues and tweaks and, providing there are no “show stopping” bugs, will be functionally identical the official release downloaded on launch day.
