Firefox 6 will be released over next few days, but I will be on 
vacations for a week, so our Gecko release will be a bit later. I 
haven't heard about any regression so far. Also changes in Mozilla code 
since out beta seem pretty safe, so unless I will hear about any 
regression, there won't be RC build and I will do the final build when 
I'm back.
