Good morning everyone!
Today, Microsoft announced the availability of Release Candidate for SharePoint 2016. This is just about the last public step prior to the final RTM build to be released before mid year. The RC should be installed as an update to Beta 2, so it shouldn't require a complete rebuild.

Microsoft has also committed to support its current tools for SharePoint Business application development – InfoPath and SharePoint Designer – until 2026. For more detail, please read Bill Baer's post. Thanks.
