On the FTP, i see
.NET Server 3757 Beta 2
.NET Server 3757 RC2

What is the real difference being beta 2 and rc2, even though they are the same build


All the info I really have, not much

The first should not be the same as the second considering that Beta 2 is Beta 2 and RC2 is Release Candidate 2.

Download the files and diff them yourselfes. You could see the difference (in file terms, meaning file size etc.) then.

Well they might be the same build, but in terms of stability, less bugs, etc. the Release Candidate one might (and probably will) be a lot better.

It happened sometimes that the same build was promoted to next stage because it was that good. This one's rather interesting as it seems to have gone from Beta 2 to RC1 and then to RC2. Assuming it's not a dupe/mislabel of course...

Could it be an mistake ? I think the truth comes from the practice,you should try it.
