skiboot-5.2.0-rc2 was released on Wednesday March 9th, 2016.
skiboot-5.2.0-rc2 is the second release candidate of skiboot 5.2, which will become the new stable release of skiboot following the 5.1 release, first released August 17th, 2015.
skiboot-5.2.0-rc2 contains all bug fixes as of skiboot-5.1.14.
This is the second release that will follow the (now documented) Skiboot stable rules - see Skiboot stable tree rules and releases.
The current plan is to release skiboot-5.2.0 mid-March 2016, with a focus on bug fixing for future 5.2.0-rc releases (if any - I hope this will be the last)
