Ehm, sorry, I saw only Sabayon_Linux_5.1-r1_x86/amd64_G/K.iso on the mirrors and on the torrent tracker.
There is any problem?

Is the release candidate 1 or the title is the same?
I think that I didn't understand these words.

why is it so confusing?
http://planet.sabayonlinux.org/

We only release official releases, we do not release Release Candidate isos, if we did it would be 5.1-RC1

what does the title say?
Sabayon Linux 5.1-r1 GNOME and KDE: Stable release

what is is name of iso on server?
Sabayon_Linux_5.1-r1_amd64_K.iso
Sabayon_Linux_5.1-r1_amd64_G.iso


what is soooooo confusing?

Ok, I'll take a stab at answering the rhetorical question... because users are assuming that Sabayon Linux 5.1 would be named... Sabayon Linux 5.1? Because the enigmatic "r1" creates a confusing first impression of being a release candidate or some other draft? Because "X1000" would be a far cooler enigmatic alphanumeric combo than "r1"?

I'm not sure, but i remember a previous Sabayon version (maybe 4.1 ?) that was r1 too. The most confusing is not the name, i think it's the fact that the links to bittorent are named without r1. Anyway, just download it and have fun :)
