There will no doubt be an official note on the Second Life website, possible in the Second Life wiki, but I don't have the url to hand.

Main Server (also called Second Life Server) channel comprises about 80% of Second Life regions and is conventionally restarted and/or rolled to a new simulator version on Tuesdays.

The RC (Release Candidate) channel comprises several smaller sets of regions, determined on the whole, by Linden Lab as required and are the first to receive new simulator versions, restarting and/or rolling on Wednesdays.

There are occasions when regions may be restarted outside these times, in the case of Mainland, which is exclusively "owned" by Linden Lab, by the Lab, or in the case of private regions, by either the "owners" or land managers.

I put owned in quotation marks since in reality all regions are owned by Linden Lab, indeed they own all aspects of Second Life.  Private ownership is merely a form of leasing.

@Aishagain, you summarized it very well.  Thank you.

The only thing that I can add is that there are in reality 4 RC channels that in some instances may each get a different version of a new server. 

The RC channels are:

  • Bluesteel
  • Ferrari 
  • Le Tigra
  • Magnum

We may also at times create small temporary RC channels that we refer to as "Snack Channels" those are in general rolled/bounced along with the RCs on Wednesdays.
