Is main Linux Mint 5 a release candidate or final version?

Hi,


Just downloading Linux Mint 5 Elyssa main version through torrent. I have noted that on the torrent it was mentioned "LinuxMint-5-r1.iso.torrent". Does this mean that the present main version is a release candidate and not the final version? Or whatever I am downloading through torrent is the final main version of Linux Mint 5 Elyssa? Please confirm. Thanks :)

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

The 'r' stands for revision and fixed a few critical bugs that were in the initial 5 release. You have the final most up to date version :)
