Of the many questions Linus Torvalds must be tired of answering, one of the top 10 has to be "when will we have a 2.8 kernel?" (Or some variation thereof.) Naturally, a big fuss wouldn't do for announcing the decision to name a kernel 2.8 — so it's been slipped in as a postscript to the announcement that the next kernel will have a short merge window.
The LibreOffice Project announced beta 5 of the upcoming 3.4 release today. The project is also announcing a change in its announcement strategy — the -announce list will only be used for final and stable releases.
