If you mean "what does rc3 stand for?" the answer is "release candidate number
3" - in other words, it's a version which is a candidate for the final release
version, provided no problems are found with it. There were obviously two
previous versions (rc1 and rc2) which did have problems, so they got fixed and
another candidate released.

Hi everyone,

They say the best things come in threes and now NVDA 2017.4rc3 is
available for testing! Coincidence? Probably, but in any case, this
release fixes performance issues in applications such as MIRC which draw
a lot of text to the screen. For the full details of what is new, and
to download the new build, head to:
