Install the RC, apply all the updates, and you have Olivia.

And stop being such a child. It will be released when ready. It's not because you ask everyday that it will be done faster.
If you want it faster consider donate. It will help to hire a new developer. Or give your time to help the project. :mrgreen:

For the same reason the RC wasn't for those who downloaded the 64-bit version before the official announcement. In that particular case it was a bad kernel. The point is, there's always a chance that the one or all of the ISOs may need to be changed before they're officially released which is just what happened to LM 15 RC (64-bit).

That being said, Mint does not hide unannounced ISOs (RC or final versions) so download away. Just be aware that there may be changes made and the ISOs re-synced before the official announcement which means you might have to download and install all over again. Small chance of that of course, but it has happened before. :)

Just for the record

So this may be a newb question since I am long time Ubuntu, new to Cinnamon Mint.
When it is released officially. Will I be able to do an Upgrade instead of a clean install?
I know the answer has to be yes. Just looking for verification since this is my 1st version release on Mint.
Thanks

Still more than 2 days left yet, a lot can happen.
I have been trying it live today, the RC kept freezing, but this release works fine, I may install it.

I've already downloaded the final off one of the USA mirrors and installed it. Applied updates and all is well. Checking back at Heanet.ie (main Mint FTP download server) the date on the ISOs are still the same. Either way, it runs fine, it's fast and stable. Heck, the RC with all applied updates seems to be no different than the yet unannounced final. The only thing I can think of is that there are some mirrors that still need to be synced--there's quite a lot of them now.
