Well there are a bunch of tests that need to happen first, but it would seem to point that way, eh?  8)

I would give it at least a week if not two just to see if anything else shakes out from in-house testing, plus feedback from external testers in the forum.

So much for waiting for a stability period to expire...  ;D

To be fair... an RC kinda is a "testing for stability"-release

I'm aware of that, but the RC process has exposed a lot of issues which were fixed.  Some major functionality wasn't even working during the RC until right near the end.  In our process, once we reach zero bugs then we continue to test and wait for external testing reports from partners.  Only after a short period (~1-2 weeks) with no more reported issues will we release.

We still have to test it internally, of course.

That's effectively exactly what we've done. We've been down to 1 bug of consequence for a week, and one that we have full test cases to validate. That's been fixed for a couple days, and it'll be 3 or 4 more until we get through internal release testing, so end result is we'll be at 0 for near a week by release and only 1 for a week prior to that.
