This latest version fixes two critical security issues so I hope Orca gets updated soon.

Well, build 2 is actually alot newer than 3.0.7. Almost a month newer, so far as the build string is concerned. But the security fixes would only effect Orca if they were flaws in the engine just like flaws in IE only effect Avant if they were in the engine.

At least one of the security issues has to do with the rendering of XML files so that, I know, would affect Orca and the bug was present in all builds of Gecko including trunk.

Release notes have been uploaded: Firefox v3.5 RC2

I'm guessing that it won't be too long until RC3 or an official release. (Yay for Orca users!)

Just FYI, Anderson informed me that once 3.5 is final it will probably take a week or more to get Orca updated. Im sure its due to the development of Avant 12. But, there might also be some changes to make, to make Orca compatible.
