The LibreOffice Project has announced Release Candidate 1 of the upcoming Libreoffice 3.4 release. The project is also announcing a change in its announcement strategy — the announce list will only be used for final and stable releases. As part of the announcement, Italo Vignoli mentioned that there seems to be some confusion about the LibreOffice scheduling and development process, and selecting the “right” release of LibreOffice. LibreOffice is on a “time based release model” and the project is avoiding schedule slips. He also encouraged users to select the “right release of LibreOffice for each situation.”
Conservative users who want very stable releases are encouraged to choose a commercially supported version, or at least wait for a point release that has all the bugs shaken out.
The Document Foundation has come up with a good news today i.e. the second micro release of Libreoffice 3.3 is out now. This is primarily a bug-fix release which is all set to improve the stability & usability of the software and sets the platform for the next release viz Libreoffice 3.4, due in mid May. If you already have LibreOffice 3.3.2 RC2, then you dont need to remove it and reinstall it all over. Just wait for the update to hit the Update Manager.
For those who cant wait, the post is as follows
