As Ogre 1.8 is due end of this year, it is finally time to get the release candidate versions out in the open for general testing to iron out any last quirks before the official release . As a first step we released the RC1 today.
The source code can either be downloaded from our official BitBucket repository or directly from the Ogre Source Download page.
Thank you for your support in advance!
PS: A detailed change log will be provided upon official release.
