UPDATE: Make that three steps closer. RC6 was released to fix a user interface bug that cropped up between RC3 and RC4. Get it while it's hot!
This week, we've taken one step in two parts toward an official 2.0 release. Ubercart 2.0-RC5 followed hot on the heels of RC4 (correcting an update function in the order module), but we found the problem ourselves and wanted to right it before blabbing the release. In a quick count, I see 43 unique patch contributors to this release, many of them newcomers.
There's so much that went into this release that it's hard to hit the highlights in this quick news post. The RC4 release notes speak for themselves, so browse the least to see what you all have helped us build.
