In software release cycle terms, a release candidate is the bridge between a beta and a final release. It's the moment we say we think this is ready, but we're happy to be proved wrong. In other words, the core functionality and stability is all there (without 'blocker' bugs), but we want your help to push the newest versions to their limits. That can mean testing on various servers, with different operating systems and browsers and putting the new features through their paces with stress tests.
Today, we're happy to announce the release of Airtime 1.9 RC1 and Newscoop 3.6 RC1!
There's lots to get excited about in the new Airtime release, including:

Great! That's what this is all about! Even the most non-technical users play a vital role in keeping our software bug-free. We value and process each and every bug and feedback report. Submitting a bug couldn’t be easier.
You can also discuss the new features and make suggestions in the Airtime and Newscoop forums. All the developers hang out there! Your feedback and testing keeps our software stable and improving, which in turn helps those that use it. Thanks for helping!
