The previous dev snapshot (rev. 1499347)  build was July 5th.  That
was 8 days ago.  So there has been over a week for anyone who was
interested in doing more testing or reporting any new release
blockers.

With the RC I think we can be more focused and verify the fixed bugs
and test around any areas that changed since the last dev snapshot.

(Think of it this way:  If Juergen had labeled the July 5th dev
snapshot as "RC 1" and today's build as "RC 2", would any more testing
have occurred?  Would anything be different?)

Regards,

-Rob
