Drupal 6 RC 2 was released on the 10 of january. This is all good news, we are getting closer to a gold release. RC2 fixes several bugs introduced in RC1. I have tested and debugged Druapl 6 (D6) since july 2007 and the RC2 is just GREAT! Have you yet not tested D6 is it about time to join the D6 train.
When is it released? Druplal is released when it is done. That means it doesn't have a release date, this prevent that we are rushing D6 to the marked before it is rock solid. As writing this the number of critical bugs has been between 0 and 6 for about two weeks. It is ready for release when at least one RC is rolled without any new critical bugs is discovered.
