Preferred Solution: Opera Without Java 7.21 Release Candidate 2 [BETA]

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer:Opera 10 Release Candidate Available

That link only works as I intended from Opera 10, which is something I didn't realise when posting it. If you follow the link from any other browser it shows the page for Opera 9.6 The page just tells new users about the new features: Opera Turbo, Customisable Speed Dial, and Visual Tabs (preview thumbnails in the tab bar).

Opera 10 Release Candidate 2

The Opera desktop team has released the second release candidate of Opera 10. The latest version of the Opera web browser is still on track for a Tuesday release. This second release candidate is not available as an automatic update and can only be downloaded directly from the Opera website.
Opera 10 Release Candidate 2 includes a variety of fixes. The most noteworthy are stability, icon and native skin fixes as well as import of widgets when upgrading from Opera 9.64. The full changelog is available on the blog post of the Opera desktop team that is announcing the new release candidate.

Opera Software has reached an important milestone with the development process of the next iteration of its proprietary browser. As of August 25th, 2009, users can now download and run the first Release Candidate of Opera 10.0. As you can see from the images included with this article, Opera Software has revamped the Opera icon, pointing out that the browser is close to finalization. In fact, RC Build 1733 of Opera 10.0 is considered stable enough for adopters to start test driving the release in their environments.

?Opera 10.0 has reached the release candidate stage,? noted a member of the Opera Desktop Team. ?What this means is that Opera 10.0 should be considered to be in a stable state code-wise, and that only selected fixes will be added if necessary. Apart from those (if any), the RC should be considered ready for release testing for Opera 10.0.?

As was the case with previous development snapshots, Opera 10.0 Release candidate (RC) Build 1733 is up for grabs for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux users. As you can see from the images included below, in Windows 7 RTM you can use the Ctrl plus Scroll on the desktop in order to grow or decrease the size of the Opera icon. If you insist long enough, you?ll be able to get the icon at the same size I did. This should of course also work on Windows Vista.

?Perhaps the most obvious change in this RC is the new application icon, designed by Oleg Melnychuk. The red O will continue to represent Opera, but it has received... Read more

Opera 11.10 codenamed Barracuda is extremely close to finalization. Illustrative of this is the latest development snapshot made available for download by Opera Software.

Build 2081 is the first Release Candidate of Opera 11.10, which of course signals the fact that the Norway-based browser vendor is getting extremely close to the point of wrapping up the next generation of Opera.

A specific availability deadline has not been announced yet, but of course, this is not how Opera Software operates.

Throughout the Alpha and Beta development stages of codenamed Barracuda, early adopters got to test the evolved Speed Dial, but also help Opera Software resolve a range of bugs and issues.

?This RC adds additional fixes to make Barracuda even more stable and streamlined. Several more crash bugs have been fixed, we have continued to polish Speed Dial, and there are numerous other fixes in there as well,? reveals a member of the Opera Desktop team.Click to expand...

Opera 10.50 Release Candidate For Windows

Software company Opera has just released the release candidate of Opera 10.50 for the Microsoft Windows operating system. That?s an incredible pace considering that the first beta releases was a little bot more than 14 days ago although they did not make it in time to be included in Microsoft?s browser choice screen for Windows users who are running Internet Explorer as their default web browser (which we suspected was the reason for the fast paced development process). Could also be that they do not want the Chrome developer?s to come any closer version wise..
Opera 10.50 RC for Windows can be downloaded directly at the desktop team blog post. The blog post outlines the changes since the last beta release, most notable several crash and stability fixes but also lots of changes to the desktop and user interface.

Opera 10.60 Release Candidate Released

Opera Software has just released the first release candidate of the upcoming Opera 10.60 web browser. Opera 10.60 continues where Opera 10.50 left of improving on overall web browser speed and compatibility.
Opera performs very well in popular web browser benchmarks, how well usually depends on the benchmark. It is fair to say that Opera 10.60 will rank fairly high in all of them except those that benefit from hardware acceleration.
The developers have released a series of snapshot releases and a beta release before the release candidate was released.

This is the fourth Swordfish (11.50) release candidate. Once again there are not many changes but careful testing by you is still needed.

In the last RC quite a few of you were concerned about the removal of the arrow in the address field drop down, so we have now provided a preference setting to bring it back (though it remains off by default).

Remember before commenting, at this stage only critical release blockers are being considered for 11.50, so if an issue you noticed doesn't fall into this category please hold off from commenting below (or take your feedback to the forums). This makes it much easier for the team here to quickly gather useful information.

The third post-Beta development snapshot of Opera 10.50 this week is now available for download. By the looks of it, Opera Software might have additional testing releases for the next iteration of its browser ready for early adopters by the end of this week.

The latest testing release to be made available for download today is Build 3261.

Looking Sharp

Alongside the regular development of Kestrel we have had a separate project to modernize our look and feel. The new skin is in many ways a prelude to Peregrine, giving you a sneak peak into the future...

If one word should describe the new look, it would be Sharp. We wanted to create a skin with clean lines and clear icons, inspired by the intuitive symbols you can expect at an airport and in line with our Scandinavian heritage. This also better matches the look and feel we introduced on the Wii and refine in Opera 9.5 for Windows Mobile.

The color scheme of the user interface is designed to not steal focus away from your browsing, but being available when you need it and clearly indicate activity (stop button turning red) or security elements.

The quality and attention to detail in the browser itself should be reflected in the look and feel. That is why we have let ourselves be inspired by high-end and professional audio/video equipment for the backgrounds, buttons and tabs.

In the default setup we have chosen to include a button to open the panels, since they are far too useful to be hidden. Also, on the panel selector we have added a "+" button to easily add more panels or remove the ones you don't use. This makes Opera easy to use for a beginner while making it natural to grow with the product and discover more advanced features for the rest of us

The New Tab button has been moved to the right of the last tab. IE7 users will be ... Read more

Source: Windows 7 Release Date And Release Candidate News

The Windows 7 Release Candidate has been made available by Microsoft for Technet and MSDN subscribers. Users with a subscription can go to the Technet or MSDN portal and download the release candidate of the upcoming Microsoft operating system where it is available as a 32-bit and 64-bit download. The public availability of the release candidate is expected on May 5 when users from all over the world will have the opportunity to download and test the Windows 7 Release Candidate.
The following links point directly to the release candidates at both the MSDN and Technet websites.

Technet 32-bit
Technet 64-bit
MSDN 32-bit
MSDN 64-bit

Probably even more important than the availability of the release candidate is the confirmation that Windows 7 will be released in the Holiday season by Microsoft Senior Vice President Bill Veghte. The release date was one of the best kept secrets with rumors ranging from an early 2009 to a late 2010 release. This essentially means that Microsoft will release the next Windows operating system in about six months.

Read online about Windows 7 RC. I assume that means release candidate. I wonder if I should try it when it comes out in May. I hate using skins for programs or programs that imitate an upcoming OS. It's not the same and you don't appreciate it as much. Whether it is transformation pack or WindowBlinds it feels fake. WindowBlinds have great skins that works for current OSs. That's cool. Hopefully Win 7, RC or whatever will come soon. If not I'll either use WindowBlinds - Vista version and skin or i'll stick with Vista now. And just wait!

Answer:Release Candidate in May

Skins can never give you what the new OS can, it's only skin deep (pun fully intended)
There are so many other changes under the hood in W7 that while it is built on the Vista kernel, there are enough differences (other than visual) that you should definitely try it. I'm surprised you haven't grabbed the Beta builds yet just to see what it's like.

To me using a skin to make an old OS LOOK like something else is like putting a Ferrari hood sticker on a Ford Pinto and thinking it's cool...

Question: Release Candidate

Did anyone try the Vista release candidate and if so which one?

Personally I tried RC1. RC2 was released much more discretely and went away quickly. I had trouble downloading RC1 though. After 2 or 3 failed attempts the server refused to allow me to download it again so I had to pay a few dollars for a DVD copy which came with both the 32 and 64 bit versions. Despite it being pre-lease I don't remember having any major issues with it.

Uhm, are you intending to upgrade your Vista to W7?, then you won't be able to go back, not that I know! I would rather create a separate partition, say a minimum of 30GB and install W7 there so that you don't affect anything else that you have on your system.

FF works perfectly fine in W7 as do most if not all Vista security apps too, and I don't use IE8, not yet anyways. Since you're not too much of a techie then I would go this way. Have fun!

Welcome to Windows 7 Release Candidate (RC) testing. We're on our way to Windows 7, and if you like trying out pre-release software, now?s your chance. You get to see what's coming, and we get to see if our changes and fixes from the Beta testing are working correctly.

How do you test the software? You put it on your PC, and then do what you'd normally do. Your PC will automatically and anonymously send our engineers the information they need to verify the fixes and changes they made based on the Windows 7 Beta tests.

Here's what you need to know:
This is pre-release software, so please read the following to get an idea of the risks and key things you need to know before you try the RC.

You don't need to rush to get the RC. The RC will be available at least through July 2009 and we're not limiting the number of product keys, so you have plenty of time.

Watch the calendar. The RC will expire on June 1, 2010. Starting on March 1, 2010, your PC will begin shutting down every two hours. Windows will notify you two weeks before the bi-hourly shutdowns start. To avoid interruption, you?ll need to install a non-expired version of Windows before March 1, 2010. You?ll also need to install the programs and data that you want to use. (Learn more about installing Windows.)

Protect your PC and data. Be sure to back up your data and please don't test the RC on your primary home or business PC.

Now that did not take long. After releasing the Firefox 3 release candidate 2 just a few days ago the Mozilla team decided to publish yet another release candidate that is currently directly available on the Mozilla ftp site. The Check For Updates function in Firefox is not detecting the new version yet and there is no official announcement about that version on the Mozilla homepage either.
As usual things take a while and users who download the releases directly from ftp will be the first to have the latest version up and running. Firefox 3 RC3 is available for Windows, Linux and Macintosh and all language versions. Just follow the link given above and navigate to the release that you need.
The only information available at this moment is a blog post over at Zdnet that is mentioning a bug in Firefox 3 for the Apple Macintosh that was caused by the recent update and that this release candidate is practically being created for the Mac.

From I can remember, some of the previous betas had issues fixed such as windows 8 support, BSODs etc, during 2nd and 3rd betas. Going RC1 that soon with such a big list I believe is not wise. I would rather see a release of Beta 4 build first to ensure issues are fully fixed and then have RC to tweak further.

Thanks much for any help..

Answer:trying to get latest release candidate

You keep looking for RC's. There is only one RC, and that's build 7100 so looking for "the latest release candidate" means you're lookign for 7100. Everything else is post-RC.

Back in October 2010 I downloaded and installed windows 7 RC SP1. When I tried to uninstall RC SP1 I receive error Service Pack 1 for windows (KB96932) is required by your computer and cannot be uninstalled. I searched the internet but could not find any info on it except to do clean install of windows 7 . Anybody know of any work arounds to uninstall it and upgrade to final version without doing clean install of windows. I don't want to do clean install as I have alot of info on my computer.

Answer:How to uninstall Win 7 SP1 Release Candidate

If your OS were on one partition, your programs on a second partition, and your files on a third partition, then reinstalling your operating system would not be much of a problem. You can at this point shrink your partition and create a new partition for your files and move them over to the new partition. Your programs cannot be moved, so you will need to reinstall them anyway, but moving them between partitions is easier and faster than moving them to an external drive. This is one option.Have you tried doing a system restore to a date before you installed the SP1/RC, it should return you to what you had without bothering your files.You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

As usual information is rather scarce before the official release notes have been posted at the official website (which they have not until now).

Today we're making available the release candidate (RC) of Windows Vista SP1 via Microsoft Connect, and tomorrow subscribers to TechNet and MDSN will have access to those RC bits too. In addition, the RC will be available to the public next week via Microsoft's Download Center. The release candidate phase of beta software is typically the final phase before the RTM (release-to-manufacturing) of a product and indicates that the code has attained a significant level of performance and stability.

Let me call out several changes made since the Beta release of Service Pack 1 -- many of which came about as a result of direct feedback from our Beta-testing community (thank you!):
The size of the standalone installers have decreased significantly. For example, the standalone installer packages consisting of all 36 languages (x86 and x64 chip architectures) are smaller by over 50%. The standalone installer packages consisting of just the 5 languages (again, x86 and x64) slated for initial release are more than 30% smaller in size.
The required amount of disc space for SP1 installation has also decreased significantly. Furthermore, with the RC, if more space is required to install SP1, an error message will now display exactly how much space is needed to complete the installation.
Previous SP1 versions left behind a directory of files that wasn't needed after installation and occupied about 1GB of space; the RC includes automatic disk clean-up to remove this directory... Read more

Windows 7 Release Candidate due date is May 5?! Wow! I can't wait. I am gonna need a blank DVD to burn it to and use. I hope it is sturdy and doesn't crash or have too many bugs it it. What I don't know it how long that setup version on the hard drive will last. Will it last until the full and final thing is out?

Is Windows 7 likely, or very likely to come with their final version of the software this year or does it look more like 2010? I am hearing conflicting results all over the web. What's going on and when can we Windows users use Windows 7 RC as long as we want without having to get a license and upgrade or whatever.

You don't have to burn Win7 on DVD to install, you can make it by mounting image to virtual drive and running installation from your current OS level. And this is not system update, just clean install. Installer copies files to hard drive, reboots and installs.

The public preview for Vista Service Pack 2 is coming soon, according to PCWorld. A preliminary release candidate has been available to select testers for a couple of months but a public RC will be more widely available during the week of Feb. 16-20. An ?escrow build? of SP2 was made available to testers this past Wednesday.

An "escrow" build is a version on which development has stopped but that is handed to developers and testers, who are asked to shake out the code one final time to make sure there are no show-stopping bugs.

The RC is available for Windows, Linux, and Mac in 79 different languages. You can download it here.
If you're already testing the beta, you'll be automatically updated.

The new build offers "general stability, performance, and compatibility improvements" as well as myriad bug fixes. According to Mozilla, it has fixed more than 8,000 bugs since the first beta was released in July of last year.

The open source outfit says that more than 70 per cent of Firefox add-ons are now compatible with the new browser. You can help test additional add-ons using Mozilla's Firefox Add-ons Compatibility Reporter.

Moving right along according to plan, the first release candidate of Firefox 3.0 appeared this morning among Mozilla's beta and candidate downloads.

As best as we can tell, it's the genuine article. As expected, most of the plug-ins recently upgraded for usability with Beta 5 were inoperable in this version, though our plug-in to switch rendering engines with Internet Explorer at will, is functional. The "About" screen clearly registered the product as "Firefox 3.0" instead of "Firefox 3.0b5." And after installation, the browser attempted to load a "What's new in 3.0" page that does not yet exist.
In the early going, we notice one obvious new addition: A link marked "Most Visited" appears next to the "Smart Bookmarks" button in the Links toolbar, which itself was an addition that cropped up, we believe, in Beta 3. Clicking on this button brings up a list of URLs that appear to be the top 10 members of the current History buffer.
The default skin looks ever-so-slightly tweaked, with more space between the new "Back" and "Forward" rocker-switch-looking contraption and the "Reload current page" button. Some pixels appear to have been cropped from the Address bar to make room.

As you've no doubt heard by now, Microsoft's next browser, Internet Explorer 9, has moved on from the beta stage to become a release candidate. This means it's pretty much in its final form, and that the next stop is full release to the Web. PCMag compiled a list of some of the most appealing new features in the release candidate. Most of what's in the RC is identical to what you saw in the beta, but below are the standout additions to a browser that outstrips its predecessor, IE8, by a country mile in speed and compatibility.

The Top 7 New Features:

1. It's even faster.
2. Tracking Protection.
3. Pinned Site Control for Site Owners
4. HTML5 Location

Windows 7 Release Candidate 1. That's as close to fully baked as it gets, so we're finally comfortable pitting it against Vista for some good ol' fashion benchmarking. Windows 7 feels snappier. Is it?

We used 32-bit versions of both Vista and Windows 7 on the same machine for testing: 2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, 4GB RAM (but really 3GB available cause of the 32-bit issue), 256MB Nvidia GeForce 9600M GT. We tested 32-bit because that's the official RC1 disc we were sent. We'll be doing a follow up with 64-bit, don't worry.

The first series of tests are the "everyday" ones?stuff you'd run into sorta daily, where taking less time is more better. Vista punked 7 out twice here, shutting down a bit faster applying a filter to a 16.6MB (9764x3720 pixel) photo in Adobe Photoshop CS4 with more haste. When we played Left 4 Dead using the recommend settings, Vista also seemed to deliver ever-so-slightly better performance, more consistently keeping the frame rate near 30 frames per second, though you'd have to be watching the FPS numbers rise and fall to really tell the difference between the two in gameplay. But you should keep in mind Nvidia's Windows 7 drivers are still in beta, and haven't been updated since March, while fresh Vista drivers came out a couple weeks ago, and drivers make huge differences with gaming performance.

This second series is pulled from PCMark Vantage and 3DMark Vantage?more traditional benchmarks, designed for Windows Vista. Here, Windo... Read more

SRWare Releases Iron 4 Release Candidate
Iron is a web browser that is based on the Chromium source code that is also powering the Google Chrome web browser. The main difference between Iron and Google Chrome is that the developers of Iron have removed privacy related issues from the code. This includes things like the unique client ID, error reporting or Google Updater which is a program that is automatically started with Windows. Iron basically follows the same development cycle as the Google Chrome web browser with version 4 currently in development.
The Iron developers have released the Iron 4 release candidate two days ago which is as usually available as a portable version and installer for the Windows operating system. Most notable changes in Iron 4 are similar to that of the Google Chrome web browser. This includes support for the extension system, bookmark synchronization and better Windows 7 support.

Welcome to Windows 7 Release Candidate (RC) testing. We're on our way to Windows 7, and if you like trying out pre-release software, now?s your chance. You get to see what's coming, and we get to see if our changes and fixes from the Beta testing are working correctly.
How do you test the software? You put it on your PC, and then do what you'd normally do. Your PC will automatically and anonymously send our engineers the information they need to verify the fixes and changes they made based on the Windows 7 Beta tests.
Here's what you need to know:

This is pre-release software, so please read the following to get an idea of the risks and key things you need to know before you try the RC. You don't need to rush to get the RC. The RC will be available at least through July 2009 and we're not limiting the number of product keys, so you have plenty of time.
Watch the calendar. The RC will expire on June 1, 2010. Starting on March 1, 2010, your PC will begin shutting down every two hours. Windows will notify you two weeks before the bi-hourly shutdowns start. To avoid interruption, you?ll need to install a non-expired version of Windows before March 1, 2010. You?ll also need to install the programs and data that you want to use. (Learn more about installing Windows.)
Protect your PC and data. Be sure to back up your data and please don't test the RC on your primary home or business PC.
Tech details/updates: Before installing the RC, please read the Release Notes and Things to Kn... Read more
