Got WordPress 2.0.5 RC1 download link from foolswisdom, you may download WordPress 2.0.5 RC1 now, zip and svn also available. But i strongly recommend you all to join the WP Testers mailing list to discuss in case you found any bugs.

Please remember that WordPress 2.0.5 RC1 is till under Release Candidate, mean that there are still minor things to make sure before it’s release to the public, so if you don’t want to take any risk to try Beta software, you may wait until the official release, most probably in 10 days or so.

WordPress 2.0.5 RC1

Saw this on WordPress admin dashboard this morning, WordPress 2.0.5 RC1 is out, but not open to public yet. This isn’t an official release, according to Dougal, WordPress 2.0.5 had change from Beta to Release Candidate, mean that soon it will release to the public.

It’s been almost three months since WordPress 2.0.4 released, the development seem like stopped for quite a long time, i guess most probably is because the team is busy with bbPress, a bulletin board system developed by WordPress team.

For those who want to try out the nightly build, you may join the WP Testers mailing list to get the download link, or you may go WordPress Trac site to have a look on what is new in the next release.
