That means they'll probably release as-is if no bugs are found. They usually do pretty quickly after putting up a RC.

Probably a .ZIP sfx, if they stick to the same style as last time. So, you can download it and unzip it manually on DOS. (Or wait for someone like Arkady to manually package .ZIPs like in 1.3 and earlier.)

Any major changes? Support for HX, perhaps? :-)
