gold code

Program source code that is ready for commercial distribution. When a vendor says its product "has gone gold," it means the source code has been compiled into an executable program ready for sale. The next steps are to turn it into an installable product and create a CD or DVD "golden master" (GM) for the disc manufacturer or into a file for Web downloads. See build and RTM.
