Dear Community,

The Document Foundation is pleased to announce the second release
candidate of LibreOffice 5.0.5. The upcoming 5.0.5 will be the fifth
bugfix release of our fresh 5.0 line. Please be aware that LibreOffice
5.0.5 RC2 has not been flagged as ready for production use yet,
however feel free to give it a try instead of 5.0.4.

A work-in-progress list of new features in LibreOffice 5.0 can be
found at https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/ReleaseNotes/5.0

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