The newly available download is a release candidate. A step higher than a beta but not the final public release (also called RTM - release to manufacturer.)

The software will stop running on November 30, 2011. You may not receive any other notice. You may not be able to access data used with the software when it stops running. It is important to note that you must uninstall the Service Pack 1 Release Candidate prior to installing future builds, including the final release, of the Service Pack.Upgrades from the beta or release candidate will not be supported.
