Subsequent Release Candidates for OpenOffice and Firefox

Jan 21, 2010

The OpenOffice project and the Mozilla Foundation have each put out a subsequent RC for the upcoming OpenOffice 3.2 and Firefox 3.6 versions.

OpenOffice 3.2 should still appear in January, whereas Firefox 3.6 has no firm release plan yet, just "when it's ready". Neither RCs have functional changes, although the most egregious bugs were fixed. The OpenOffice 3.2 RC is presumably the last one.
