# Add-on has a warning that "this script is RC". What does this mean? [closed]

I was in process of activating the POV-ray 3.7 addon and there was a warning with the message "this script is RC". What does this warning mean?

• Release Candidate version I assume. May 20 '15 at 2:43
• This was the first link in the list of hits when I googled for "what does rc stand for".

• @BlendingJake It is about Blender because add-ons are a part of blender. Things like bmesh have been adopted and become an integral part of Blender. So, please clarify how this is not a part of blender as an add-on. Add-ons are both simple and complex script additions, and script modifications which call external engines to support Blender function. This is very much a part of Blender's concept. The add-on exists, it was included with the release; so, I'm not sure what you mean. "Not about Blender"?! More specifically, it's about the message included in the add-on in Blender.

• Because it is more a question about how a program is released and how its version are labeled, like alpha, beta, RC, etc. This is something that is universal for the most part and not limited to Blender. @Cyberchipz May 22 '15 at 16:46

The warning is added by the Authors of the add-on in its bl_info dict, it does not come from Blender itself. Warnings like that are an attempt by the Authors to inform you (the user) about the add-on's state of completion
