'This RC doesn't introduce new features or change existing features provided in the March 2011 CTP. For a list of fixes included in this release, see the Commerce Server 2009 R2 Readme provided on this download page," Microsoft stated.
Note: "This RC is our last pre-release before final release of the product. While this version contains a limited "use in production" license, it is subject to a time-bomb and you will need to acquire the product through your Volume Licensing, MSDN, or ISV channels in the near future. This software will stop functioning on December 31, 2011," the software comany noted.
