Think harder. The point is that if a Release Candidate build is determined
to be
good *enough* to be released, the *exact* *same* *bits* will become the
then instead. Just the names of the download directories, downloadable
file, etc
are changed as necessary. So if the Help:About would say RC2, and RC2 would
turned into a release, then the release would also say RC2. Which would be
confusing, wouldn't it?

It's not a matter of thinking harder. The program I'm used to that uses
Release Candidates simply changes the version number (even if no changes are
made to the code). So RC2 is build 7599 and the OEM is 7600. But for the
user what matters is that one shows in the About box as RC2 and the other as

I know that makes no sense for developers but the About box is for the
users... so it should be user friendly ;)
