We /are/ doing RCs just like we've done in the past. Before 3.0.0 will 
be released there will at least be a 3.0.0RC1 and maybe also a 3.0.0RC2. 
But it takes time to prepare these and thus RCs are only prepared when a 
new release is planned. Everything else would be - simply spoken - a 
waste of our time that is better spent improving the compiler, the RTL 
and whatever else we have.
