In the push towards a stable release of CyanogenMod 10.1, the development team has published its third release candidate (RC) with a boat load of bug fixes including a fix for the preview issues seen after using the camcorder.
In software development circles release candidates are used for public testing and to squash bugs. The idea is that the software is functionally ready and a release candidate is created for testing. If serious bugs are found they are fixed and another release candidate is created and so on. This process normally only lasts for three or four iterations. Depending on the release strategy of the development team the final release will either be a relabeled release candidate with no changes what so ever (this is the safest methodology) or it will be a latest release candidate with some more bug fixes.
According to a CyanogenMod Google Plus posting other fixes in this release include a fix for a bad launcher icon alignment on tablets, various fixes for disappearing widgets, a fix for a crash in the T9 launcher, and a ton of translation updates.
