To OP:

It's not exactly a nice move to link to the download folder before the main website has been updated, because as you might notice this has resulted in a lot of confusion from normal HN users who don't follow the Blender mailing lists/developer forums closely. The release is in fact today, the 30th of July, but possibly several hours from now, as many developers are currently at SIGGRAPH in California.

Even if the link is changed to https://www.blender.org/download/releases/2-80/ (which it probably should be), that page hasn't been updated since RC3, which will possibly just confuse more people.

It would probably be better for the Blender community to not jump the gun and wait until the website is updated.
