Any record of any problems with it? Since it is a release candidate, I'm hesitant to download it.

There probably are problems that have came up but since it was released not too long ago the problems haven't been documented officially yet. Example - say I dl it, I expierence a problem, since I don't run any known web pages dealing with stuff like that no one outside of maybe the IRC channel is going to know about it, now say I didn't frequent any computer forums then no one outside of a few people would know my problems with it, so it wouldn't get documented.

Can't say I've had any problems since installing it.
