While Oracle had already released Oracle Open Office 3.3 in mid-December, the developers have only just issued the ninth release candidate for 3.3.0, the next major release of the Oracle owned open source office suite.

According to the Wiki, this release candidate is expected to be the final development preview before the final version arrives. However, a final release date has yet to be confirmed.
