This was the announcement for RC2.

The master branch is still closed.
There may be an RC3, but if there is, it will be specific bug fixes.
We’re not going to open up for general changes before the release; the goal here is to make the differences between RC(n) and RC(n+1) as small as possible.

We will definitely announce when the master branch is open again, but it will be after we release.
