Release Schedule

On August 16, the following schedule was decided:

  • Sunday August 23rd, 12:00 GMT. The trunk will be branched so that the release team can work on optimizing the final image.
  • Wednesday September 9th, 12:00 GMT. Alpha 1 will be tagged. Then a build will be made and tested.

The testing of the build is expected to take a few days (pending any unforeseen problems). The website team will also require a few days to upgrade the website in order to support the release of the first alpha. The expected release date is around Monday the 14th.
