Yes, you've read right - there won't be any release candidate this week.
The current state of bugzilla lead us to delay the _name_ release candidate, it would just be silly to name it release candidate when we have several known issues (8 blockers and additional 11 P1 bugs speak for themselves).
But even releasing beta5 looks at the moment like a challenge as I haven't installed a system in a week due to several medium generation and general yast problems.
But still we're confident that we will make the final deadline, so all we decided was naming RC1 beta5 and RC2 will be the (by then only) release candidate. The rest of the roadmap stays untouched.
