I think we only show the version that is officially recommended. We do
not offer automatic update to 3.6.x yet, either.

It is. We are at 3.6.3 RC1 now.

The numbering of RCs starts with .1. The last RC (typically RC2 -> .2)
is exactly equivalent to the final release--we just copy the files to a
different directory on the download site. So, for 3.6.2, we had:
- (RC1)
- (RC2)
  -> this later become (final)
