As usual, you can deploy the new version straight from the Zextras Administration Zimlet.

Testers who have been granted access to the Release Candidate package for this release should deploy the stable version and clear their zimlet cache by running `zmprov fc zimlet` as the "zimbra" user on their mailbox servers.
