A second preview release for Unreal Engine 4.12 has been released.  Once again this is a preview release, so expect some bugs and instability.  According to Epic:

This release comes with updates and new features for rendering, such as improved high quality reflections, an update for the Dual Coat shader model (to now specify a second normal map for the surface below the clearcoat layer) and support for realtime planar reflections.

There are of course several bug fixes in this release as well:
