Beta is identical to Beta RC3. In general, for each of Alpha, Beta, and Final,
one of the corresponding release candidates is chosen (usually, but not
necessarily, the last one). You can verify this by comparing the unsigned
checksum files for Beta RC3 with the corresponding signed ones for Beta. The
only difference is the signature.
Isn't that an odd thing to do? I would have thought that the point of
having different pre-final release versions, including release
candidates, is to progressively improve the version ie reduce bugs - as
it gets closer to a final release?
Thanks for the info though . .
