Only a few days after the release of Release Candidate 1 (RC1) of OpenOffice 3.1.0, the developers have discovered new bugs that they need to eliminate before the final release. As a result, a release candidate 2 (RC2) will appear the week after Easter. The project team is now planning the release of the final version 3.1 of the free office suite for the 26th of April – provided that there are no show stoppers in the RC2 release.

OpenOffice release delays are the rule, rather than the exception. On several occasions in the past bugs found in release candidates have caused delays while the development team worked to eliminate them. Not being bound by the commercial deadlines of proprietary software means the developers can take enough time to correct any major issues.
