The 12.7.1 release candidate build is now available in the customer portal for those customers wishing to deploy. Reminder, an RC is what has completed our internal testing and we believe is ready to go, but want to get feedback from users before we make generally available since we cannot duplicate every environment out there. You can also find the current version of the release notes here - WHD 12.7.1 Release Notes
I had a remote session this morning working on the CSS issues that I am seeing. The provided me with a workaround for the CSS that seems to be working and will get back to with something more permanent before the final release. Luckily I have a test instance so its not end user impacting.
Reached out to support to get RC, I guess the RC version has issues? I get it is Beta, but not releasing an RC, must still be bad.
Thank you for contacting SolarWinds Technical Support.
My name is Joshua and I will be working on this case with you.
We don't recommend installing the 12.7 RC1 for your production since it is only a BETA version and not the official one.
We are still identifying possible issues that might still exists in this version.
Thank you for choosing SolarWinds products.

Has anyone still on 12.7 moved to the RC? I want to get off 12.7 but don't see value in downgrading if a new stable is coming out soon. Though restarting my service multiple times a day IS getting tedious as are the other issues we have on 12.7
Will let others of course chime in, but yes we have had many customers upgrade and some who have reported some issues that engineering has worked with them on, but in general, no what I would deem as critical issues have been reported. Are you able to upgrade to an RC or do you have to wait for GA?
I don't HAVE to wait, but I have an upgrade window coming up and if it resolves my issues without introducing new ones that would be spectacular. Its been out such a short time though that I'm not ready to put it in production without getting a lot of feedback.
