Ilia Alshanetsky has officially announced that the latest release candidate for the PHP 5.2.5 series (RC1) has been posted and is ready to test.

This RC includes a fair number of fixes since our last release and predominantly works on improving the stability of the 5.2 tree as well as including a small number of minor security fixes. I’d like to ask everyone to test this release against your code and setups, we are aiming for a quick release cycle and user feedback is critical for a successful release.
