Release Candidate #3 has quietly been uploaded to download.blender.org. More than 200 issues have been fixed, but again I couldn't get my hands on a list of changes (which I think is kind of disappointing). Anyway - download a fresh version here and take it for a spin . This is your last chance to find any bugs before the release, so hack away, have fun and report your bugs on the official bugtracker!
Note: at the time of writing the only the Windows and OSX versions were available. Ton couldn't give us an indication how soon builds for other platforms will be up.
