Dear Community,

The Document Foundation is happy to announce the second release
candidate of LibreOffice 3.3.1. The upcoming 3.3.1 is the first in a
series of frequent bugfix releases on top of our LibreOffice 3.3
product. Please be aware that LibreOffice 3.3.1 RC2 is not yet ready
for production use, you should continue to use LibreOffice 3.3 for
that.

The Release Candidate 2 is available for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X
from our QA builds download page at

Detailed change log:

 * Fix for RTF export: fix text export for Russian locale

 * removed gd - Gaelic, ky - Kirghiz, pap - Papiamento, ti - Tigrinya,
   ms - Malay, ps - Pashto, ur - Urdu. UI localization does not exist
   in these languages. So it makes no sense to ship packages.

   filter/source/config/fragments/makefile.mk.
 * Upgraded libwpd (WordPerfect filter) to 0.9.1

   documents. When a cell with non-default formatting attribute starts
   with non-first row in a column, the filter would incorrectly apply
   the same format to all the cells above it if they didn't have any
   formats.
 * Ubuntu: fix for lp#696527 - enable human icon theme in LibreOffice
