projects: pentaho, mondrian, jfreereport and weka. Released builds are identified as Milestone, Release Candidate or stable.

Milestone (M) builds occur throughout the development cycle when a significant set of features or bugs have been implemented. The build will be stable enough for testing those new changes but may have introduced new bugs or instabilities to other parts of the code. Milestones give the community an opportunity to provide feedback on a feature while there is still time to change it during that dev cycle. Milestone builds should never be put into production.

Release candidate (RC) builds are much more stable then milestones and come at the end of the development cycle. There can be as many RC builds as needed until the release is considered stable. RC builds are ready for full testing and give the community time to find critical bugs or usability issues before the release is marked stable. RC builds should not be put into production but can be used for acceptance testing or prototyping.

Stable builds are posted after a series of RC builds and when the consensus is that the release has no blocking issues. The stable build is usually the last CE build in a release. Pentaho does not post patch builds for CE except in extreme cases. If you are going to put a CE release into production, you will want to use a stable build.
