CyanogenMod team have started rolling out CM 10.1 RC3 build to selective devices from today. This is 3rd Release Candidate build of Android 4.2.2 JDQ39 based CyanogenMod 10.1 ROM. The updated version can be downloaded and installed on any of the supported smartphones or tablets. CyanogenMod is one of the popular Android 4.2.2 custom ROMs and supports almost all of the popular devices including Google Nexus, Samsung Galaxy and several of HTC and Sony devices. To see if your device is supported or not, you can check the official get.cm website.
The availability of RC3 was announced a while ago by the CyanogenMod Team on their official Google+ page. The update read:
Some crafty users may have already spotted them, but RC3 builds are now hitting the jenkins build server and landing on get.cm
This is a small incremental change over RC2, addressing a few tens of issues all of you reported through Jira (including some global problems like the preview issues after using camcorder, bad launcher icon alignment in tablets, disappearing widgets, a crasher in the T9 launcher, and a ton of translation updates), and brings us one step closer to release
So the update has some bug fixes and performance improvements but no new features or support for any further devices. You can download the update from get.cm website.
