As mentioned on the Exploring IE blog this morning, we have released the Windows Internet Explorer 9 Release Candidate (RC). The IE 9 Release Candidate incorporates over 17,000 pieces of feedback received from customers, including 15,000 since IE 9 Beta. The RC not only offers better speed, reliability, and performance over Internet Explorer 8 but also incorporates some great new features including Tracking Protection.
As you explore Internet Explorer 9 RC, you should also check out the enterprise tools and updated documentation now available to IT Professionals. Starting today, the Internet Explorer Administration Kit 9 (IEAK 9) and the IE9 Blocker Toolkit are available for download. The IEAK 9 is a tool that helps IT Pros configure default settings and options, package custom components with IE9, and create an MSI wrapper to enable deployment via Active Directory. The IE9 Blocker Toolkit is an automatic update management tool that helps ensure that IE9 is introduced to corporate desktops at the right time. The IE9 Blocker Toolkit prevents the installation of IE9 on unmanaged desktops after the final release of IE9 (Release to Web) becomes available through Windows Update. You can download the new tools and guidance at these links:
In addition to the tools above, we have updated the following guidance that was originally released at IE9 Beta:
You may also want to download and try the latest version of the Microsoft Assessment and Planning (MAP) Toolkit 5.5 which now includes features to help you identify web browsers installed in your existing PC environment companywide and inventory IE add-ons, Active-X controls and more that will help you better plan your Windows 7 and Internet Explorer deployment.
For those of you who are deploying Windows 7 with Internet Explorer 8, continue down that path but include Internet Explorer 9 as part of your pilot process. Internet Explorer 9 delivers a fast, customizable, secure experience for your end users. And with nearly 1,500 security policies available, the ability to lock down and standardize your end users’ browsing environment will reduce help desk calls and end user issues.
With the Release Candidate, Internet Explorer 9 Release Candidate is now feature complete, and we’re in the final stages to ensure that IE9 meets the quality bar for release. Starting today, users and developers can take advantage of these new platform capabilities and get ready for Internet Explorer 9.

I'm very sorry to see the RC still uses the same DW font rendering engine as the beta. With text so fuzzy and hard to read for me, I do not see myself even attempting to use IE9 over Chrome. Compatibility mode fixes the issue, but then what was the point of upgrading to 9 if I can't even use the new engine? I've read lots of feedback from people who have the same issue with it, so I foresee there being a lot of complaints once it's released (assuming it isn't corrected by then).
I agree with Resplendent about font rendering. I just opened Gmail after installing IE9 RC and the font looks just so blurry and horrible.
People already complaining about this here (connect.microsoft.com/.../font-rendering-is-worse-in-ie9-than-ie8) and in IE blog comment and yet Microsoft still has no respond on this.
Will you Microsoft fix this just like WPF team did this in WPF 4?
The best way to get your feedback to the IE team for RTW consideration is to use feedback button (Alt +X) as that will get right to the engineering teams. I will pass your feedback on but use the feedback tool as well.
I thought I've posted a Connect (https://connect.microsoft.com) issue link in my previous comment. Although it's not me who reported it, my point is that it's already been reported to Connect. Isn't a feedback sent through the IE Send Feedback feature going to be reported to Connect?
Another point I'd like to raise is that after it's been reported in Connect, it doesn't seem to get enough attention or response from the IE Engineering Team to finally realize that the issue exist and then fix it.
I hope there will be a clear clarification about this issue in regards to my points above and Microsoft willingness to fix it.
We review all feedback direct and via connect. We then look at all the feedback and rank the issues based on how man people how them and severity.
Just because you did not get a response does not mean your feedback was not seen.
