Dear Community,

The Document Foundation is pleased to announce the second release
candidate of our upcoming LibreOffice 4.0. The 4.0 will be our fifth
major release in just over two years, and comes with a nice set of new
features. Please be aware that LibreOffice 4.0 RC2 is not ready for
production use, you should continue to use LibreOffice 3.6.4 for that.

For further milestones towards 4.0, please refer to our release plan
