Guys, the RTM is usually the last version before the final release.
Well that isn't totally correct the RTM 'is the final version', not the last version before the final release - in the old hard copy world that is what was sent to manufacturing be turned into CDs.
Well, nevertheless it's the way Avast does it.

Regardless of how they do it, build 2015.10.2.2213 still isn't available through the avastUI Program Update on 2015.10.0.2208 which is why there is so much confusion in calling this RTM Update  - AVAST 2015 R2 RC2.

As has been mentioned RTM and R2 RC2 shouldn't be used in the same context.

One or other of the two terms should be removed.

Wikipedia tells that:

Quote
The term "release to manufacturing", also known as "going gold", is a term used when a software product is ready to be delivered or provided to the customer. This build may be digitally signed, allowing the end user to verify the integrity and authenticity of the software purchase. A copy of the RTM build known as the "gold master" or GM is sent for mass duplication. RTM precedes general availability (GA), when the product is released to the public.
Bolding mine. And:

Quote
The time between RTM and GA can be from a week to months in some cases before a generally available release can be declared because of the time needed to complete all commercialization activities required by GA. At this stage, the software has "gone live".

So, RTM is final version, but it has not been released to the public yet as final.

Yes, it is a contradiction, but this is really the RTM. And anyone who contradics this, will be kicked ( under his/her ass ) by me :P

Sure it isn't available trough a GUI-update, as it belongs to the beta channel.

Whatever the Semantics are, DazvidR is correct.

We didn't want to do final release Friday evening, so we released it to beta repository and the final production release you can expect early next week.

And what did I tell you guys  ::)

This is the RTM ( Release To Manufacture ) meaning there won't be an RC3, and we can expect an official release very soon :)

I wouldn't bet on Monday. Tuesday and Thursday are the favorite Avast! release days :)
