Richard,

I agree. In the old daysŠ you were happy when the RC3 was released because
in those days you knew that the release version was the next one.
Releasing RC¹s in a short time is not good because it looks like the house
is in fireŠ And is not.
Software development is most of the time solving errors, caused by us,
humansŠ ;-)
