Looks quite possible that we’ll be using WordPress 3.3 before Christmas. 3.3 Beta 1 was released on October 11th so plugin and theme authors have had more than enough time to test their code against the latest version of WordPress. However, when a Release Candidate is offered, it’s generally the best time for testing as there is a very small chance that any major code changes will occur to the core. ∞

Sam Bauers announced on the bbPress developers blog that release candidate 1 has been pushed out the door. According to the post, progression towards 1.0 will increase with these release candidates. Despite this version being a release candidate, Sam does not recommend using this on a live website just yet. If you want to see what’s changed, he recommends performing a fresh install.
If you find any bugs in RC1, submit them to trac so Sam can take care of them ASAP.

Ryan Boren announced on the WordPress Testers mailing list today that WordPress 2.7.1 RC1 has been released. So far, looks like a couple of bugs have been squashed with the potential for a few more before this version hits the public. Here is a short list composed by Ryan announcing the bugs fixed thus far.
- URL column in Edit Links removes www. from domains that end in www
- Theme preview fails when theme in subdirectory
- Draft Saved’ current_time not reflecting timezone setting in the edit area
- Revisions do not respect time zone offset
- Canonical redirect of feed URLs with suffixes is wrong
- index.php file in the plugins folder makes the Dashboard fail
