Congrats for the release!
I'm actually a bit surprised by its sudden arrival-- there was no discussion about it on the beta boards (unlike all previous releases), and many of the Curve glitches that are reported (in private) on the bug tracker have yet to be fixed. Do you think you'll fix all of them before the public release?
For the record, I find it quite amusing that I released SMG2 RC2 (SMF Media Gallery) 15 minutes after SMF2 RC2 (yes that's the same version number). I mean, I only saw the announcement right now. Maybe we all thought "October 3" was a nicer release date than "October 4" or something
