Build OpenWrt: Which version to choose and what does RC mean?

I wanted to build openwrt and followed the wiki guide on how to. When entering git tag to select a specific version for git checkout i receive a list:


I have a few questions now:

  1. Which version should i pick to build the latest stable version?
  2. Which one might be considered unstable?
  3. Is rc4 newer than v21.02.0 (without any rc)?
  4. What does RC stand for? What does RC mean?

RCs is release candidates, they preceed 21.02.0.

It's pre final, daily betas are called snapshots.


So i should always choose the version without RC to stick with the most stable version?
