Firefox 3.5 release candidate (3.5rc1build2) released to developers

Mozilla today pushed out their first release candidate build of Firefox 3.5 to developers. This latest update contains several bug fixes and the build is now stable enough for general browsing, although Mozilla have yet to complete the quality assurance testing required before an official product release. The final release of Firefox 3.5 is expected later this month.

This update is not being made available via direct download and only via auto-update through the Beta channel. If you are currently running a Beta build, select “Check for Updates…” in the “Help” menu.

As always developers should read the Firefox 3.5 for Developers article on the Mozilla Developer Center to keep up to date on latest bug fixes and known problems.
