Six Monthly Release Cycle Schedule

  • Each release has 16 weeks before feature freeze.
  • For each release, We've put feature freeze at a month before the release candidate. Only non-feature bug fixes will be committed after this. We might reevaluate this for 1.7 if it is excessive.
  • We've scheduled 3 weeks of RC before the final, but will perhaps reevaluate that to two weeks for 1.7 onwards.
  • The week before the release candidates is a UI freeze. This is a freeze to string changes and theme changes. String or UI fixes will need to be at least high importance.


Discussed briefly at the developer meeting on 2012-05-23 and in more length at the developer meeting on 2012-06-27.


Because we are adopting the 6 month release cycle, we have revised the support schedule for releases.
