I've been keeping up to date (as much as possible) on the forums because there's a bunch of things I can't do with the RC that I want to be have in\working for release.
So I thought I'd start an ugly table of what will be missing when it ships. I can certainly understand why they'd release it with these missing features as the release date keeps getting pushed back, but IMO as slick as the interface and designer is, without some of these basic features, it's not an official release. I'm even a little hesitant to develop against the RC for my main official site because right now we're getting a lot of Hacks to get features up and working...I really don't want to have a site bloated with ways to get something something working in the RC.
