Release candidates


Hi,

If I install a release candidate, will there be a way to upgrade to the final version just by download a few files/packages?

I've Linux SOHO 5 in mind.

Thanks

Usually, it is just a matter of patch and recompile.
Release Candidates are typically considered to be relatively stable anyway...
