The release notes for RC1 states that - ‘The Release Candidate includes downloadable artifacts (Linux tars and Docker images) as well as a number of OpenSearch plugins.’
However, the respective links to the opensearch plugins suggest to build the plugins from the source code and then install the built zip.
(For ex. security-dashboards-plugin ).
The downloads page also does not have an option to download the plugins currently.
But in case of opendistro, the standalone plugins were available in zip format for direct download and use.
Will the GA release of opensearch deliver the individual standalone plugins as direct downloadable zip files?
