The LibreOffice 4.5 release plan has now also become the LibreOffice 5.0 plans. The schedule remains the same with the LibreOffice 5.0 Beta 1 coming in mid-May, LibreOffice 5.0 Beta 2 in early June, LibreOffice 5.0 RC1 in mid-June, and the official LibreOffice 5.0.0 release the last week of July or first week of August.
