    I have been using RC build 7100 since it came out and have been thrilled with it's stability. I have read that RC 7213 and other relase candidates have since been released (or leaked) Are the later builds better (more features) than my build 7100, or do my automatic updates keep me abreast with all the latest improvements and put me on par with the latest builds?

    I have personally installed all of the leaked versions and I can tell you there is no new features in any of them. It is unlikely we will see any new features or UI changes to 7 at this point in development, and new builds only contain minor bug fixes.

    It is my advice that you stay with the RC (7100) as it is rock solid and is the only supported release from Microsoft.

    If the RC is going well for you, it is in your best interest to stay with it. I have it running as my main OS as it is the only build that supports PunkBuster.
