-Welcome to Jython 2.5b4
+Welcome to Jython 2.5rc1
-This is the fifth beta of the 2.5 version of Jython.  It contains a new
-implementation of List and Tuple, as well as a patch which helps Jython run in
-an envrironment without file write access (specifically for use on Google App
-Engine) There are also a number of smaller bug fixes.  This beta contains all
-of the new features for the eventual 2.5 release continues the feature freeze.
-We are very close, once this beta has been tested in the wild for a bit and we
-close a few more high priority bugs, we will start release candidates.
+This is the first release candidate of the 2.5 version of Jython.  It contains
+bug fixes and polish since the last beta.  One especially nice bit of polish is
+that jline is enabled by default now, and so using up and down arrows should
+work out of the box.  If no major bugs are found this release will get
+re-labled and released as the production version of 2.5.0.
 The release was compiled on Mac OS X with JDK 5 and requires JDK 5 to run.
-As a beta release, this release is incomplete and contains bugs.  Do not
-use in a production environment.
+Please try this out and report any bugs at
