OpenOffice.org Releases RC3 of Version 2.0

Filed under
Software

OpenOffice.org made available for free download a third release candidate of Version 2.0 of its popular open-source office suite Friday. The release includes bug fixes only and no new features.

The project had planned to release its final 2.0 version on Oct. 13-the fifth anniversary of the founding of the organization-but it decided to hold off due to a "show-stopping" problem with the software. No new date has been attached to the final release, but community manager Louis Suarez-Potts said it could be ready as early as next week or as late as the end of the month.

OpenOffice.org released Beta 2 of Version 2.0 on Sept. 1.
