Firefox LogoMozilla has just released Firefox 3.5 Release Candidate (RC) to the web.

Other than better stability, there doesn’t seem to be much new under the hood. A full list of changes since Beta 4 can be found in the release notes.

The browser is available on all major platforms from the Firefox Beta website. Existing Beta 4 users will have the update pushed out to them automatically.

Firefox LogoIt appears Firefox 3.5 Release Candidate 1 is now expected at some stage this week. Nightly builds of the browser now include the RC1 tag, suggesting that we will see a release some time this week.

Current early Windows builds weigh in at 7.6MB and run on Windows 2000 all the way up to Windows 7.

On the outside, the browser doesn’t appear too different from Beta 4, but there are plenty of bug fixes that have gone in under the hood. “Even before shipping the RC, we’ve managed to find a number of issues that needed fixing,” said Mike Beltzner, the director of Firefox.

The final 3.5 release is still expected before the end of the month, and we will let you know as soon as the release candidate is released.

After weeks of delays associated with the most recent two Firefox 3.5 beta’s, Mozilla is now on track to deliver Firefox 3.5 release candidate (RC) 1 in June.

“We’re setting an aggressive code freeze target of next Wednesday, May 20th  for Firefox 3.5 RC” said Firefox Director Mike Beltzner. This puts “the RC release somewhere in the first week of June.”

Currently, there are still outstanding code blocking bugs stopping Firefox 3.5 from hitting RC status. Provided they are all completed in time, we may even see a final release of Firefox 3.5 sometime in late June or early July.

Firefox 3.5 Beta 4 can be downloaded in the mean time from the Firefox beta website.
