Mozilla Firefox 3.0 to be released June 17
Late Wednesday evening, a Mozilla spokesperson confirmed to BetaNews that the day the final edition of Firefox 3.0 would be made available to the general public, will be this upcoming Tuesday, June 17.
The time the final edition goes live was not disclosed, although the organization said it will be converting its headquarters in Mountain View, California, into "Camp Firefox" where invited guests and employees will celebrate its efforts to set a Guinness World Record for the most downloaded piece of software in a 24-hour period. That celebration is set to begin in the early evening, Pacific time.
The Mozilla spokesperson also formally acknowledged today's issuance of Release Candidate 3 of the next Firefox browser. Its only change over RC2 was for Mac users, in order to address a bug experienced by users upgrading their operating systems.
