Regardless of whether or not there is a difference, they are

release candidates to official releases are not supported. It is
therefore to your benefit to set your expectations accordingly. It can
and will break, albeit with RCs likely a lot less than test releases.
But as you can see in your case, it has (slightly) broken things.
So the general rule of thumb is that it will probably work most of the
time, but you will likely need to spend a little time patching things
