New Milestone Schedule Announced

Thursday May 20th, 2004

Asa Dotzler has posted a new milestone plan which outlines some changes being made to the release schedule of point releases of the suite and platform going forward. The main change is the now longer periods prior to a final release, with two longer Alpha periods, and a longer Beta period. This allows for more time to land large changes and get them stable prior to a final release. Along with these changes, there will now be at least one release candidate prior to each final release. More information can be found in some of Asa's recent weblog postings.

Update: Some of the text and links above have been updated to provide more information.

From the drawing of the new roadmap, it looks like the release candidate would be built from the code as it exists at the time of branching. Is that the plan? If so, that's a great idea -- I often grab the last nightly build before branching so I can see if a bug was added before the branch or after. This would mean I could just download RC1 instead of trying to search for that nightly build.
