[announce] 1.1rc1, dicts packages uploaded & on debian-openoffice mirrors

As a few of you have noticed already, rene & I have been uploading packages
to unstable and the debian-openoffice mirrors.  The packages need manual
processing so it will take a while for them to be accepted into unstable.

In the meantime, packages for i386 are in the 'unstable' section of the
debian-openoffice mirrors [1].  The dictionary packages were uploaded today,
so they might not have reached all the mirrors yet.

There are many many changes to the packages [2].  We froze before the official
rc1 release but it has taken so long to get all the bugs out that now rc3 is
almost ready upstream.   Martin Kretzschmar has been working on rc3 already
and has done a lot of the changes we need, so it shouldn't take as long as
usual to switch to the new version.

Have fun,
