That's right! The Release Candidate for the version 2.77 is ready!
Some new exciting features are in, as always, including big improvements in the SSS rendering (now supported in GPU), booleans inside the Edit Mode, and many more!
Follow the link above to read the release notes and download the Release Candidate. Make sure to report bugs if you find some, too.
Thanks to the Blender Foundation to coordinate all this, can't wait for the new release! :D
