Good news for people who are eager to see OpenOffice.org 3.0 which is scheduled to be released this month. An RC 1 release is now available through OpenOffice.org Developer Snapshot Builds. You can help the project by testing this RC release and report any bug you encountered to be fixed in the next release and before the final version comes up late this month.

Please note that this version is NOT intended to be used on production machine (yet). It's more intended for developers, testers, and users trying to make OpenOffice.org better by giving it a try and report any bugs found.
