Two months after the first beta arrived, the OpenOffice.org developers have issued the first release candidate (RC1) of OpenOffice.org 3.3.0, the next release of the Oracle owned open source office suite.
According to the OpenOffice.org Wiki, the RC1 development version will be followed by a second release candidate and a quality assurance (QA) build prior to the final product release. Dates for the RC2, QA and Final version have yet to be confirmed.
OpenOffice.org 3.3.0 RC1 features an updated, easier to use, Extension Manager user interface (UI) and a number of improvements to Calc spreadsheets, such as increasing the number of rows supported from 65,536 to 1,048,576.
