MultiCharts 8.0 Release Candidate is one of the last versions before the release. It’s pretty much the release version, a last chance to iron out any bugs. Any beta testers are asked to report found issues through the PM, so we can correct before the release. Making sure all features work, and that there are as few bugs as possible.
