(Release candidate) Announcements
The main purpose of an RC is to get people to test the release for any major bugs. Therefore, we do not consider the RC as a release and only announce it through: Twitter, IRC, and the mahara.org news forum.
Updating master.dev.mahara.org however is useful for users who do not have somewhere to set up a test instance but would like to check out the changes.
