For future releases there will be no unified support topics (like this one), so you will be able to post all the "congrats!" and "great!"s in the corresponding thread in the Announcements, while all support issues will be posted as separate threads in Support or Development forums.
This will make the life of developers (and moderators) easier - tracking unsolved issues, following conversations, etc.
I have a test folder with all kind of Panoramas, jpg, raw, nef. Around 90. Most of them hand held and some near the edges of being undetected (well ... it was raining and snowing at the time, or i had some drinks because of the cold ).
This is my test directory. RC3 finishes all of them with no detection errors, no crashes, not a single problem. At least to my 45 years old eyes. So Bravo! to the programmers.
