Only difference is it doesn't contain any security patches included.

Don't know if I have described it correctly, but more or less its like that. After like a week of mass testing by the community the standard release with same version takes place adding identified bug fixes and security parches.

Exactly right. Pre-releases aren't posted on the blog and the normal extra work (eg: creating the version check pages, the new plugin hooks list, the release notes documentation) isn't done. Pre-releases are basically a way of us telling the world to expect a release soon (usually within a week of the first pre-release, so long as there aren't any big major issues discovered) and asking for the community to try and help us test the new packages if they can. It also gives theme and plugin developers a chance to make sure their products are compatible with the newest versions before they're even released.
