This is a great catch - the -> is not supposed to be
offered yet ( is final, and we want to keep people updated in the
"previous final" -> "next final" way), but -> should
have been offered, and was not.

It is now fixed - can you please install 3.5.1 RC1 (, and try
Help -> Online Update...?  It should present you with the availability
of RC2.

Please keep up the good work, this was an important catch, we really
need to ensure that the update service is working all the time, not only
from the server side, but even more importantly from the client
(LibreOffice) side too.  I will come up with a test case how to check it
with every LO version (regardless of the version), and will ask you to
run that test that with every release.

Thank you a lot,
