All translated messages (GUI strings) are frozen on this date. Only previously untranslated strings or clear errors in strings can be fixed. No major new strings changes should be done. You cannot add new strings, if you really need one ask kde-i18n-doc for an exception. It is ok to remove strings. Exception: Artwork (try to keep the number of new strings low anyways). Exception: Typo fixes can be fixed until the Hard Message Freeze, but you have to mail kde-i18n-doc saying you made a typo fix change.

Wednesday, May 22, 2013: KDE 4.11 Soft Feature Freeze

Trunk is frozen for feature commits that are not listed in the planned feature document. Only bugfixes and the code implementing the listed features are to be committed after this date. The feature list also closes today.

Features not already finished or not listed on the planned features page will have to wait until the next KDE SC release.

Wednesday, May 29, 2013: KDE 4.11 Dependency Freeze

From this moment on it is not allowed to add new dependencies or bump dependencies versions. It is possible to get an exception for this. Post the patch to reviewboard and add the release-team as reviewer. We will check if the dependency is needed and is available on all platforms.

Wednesday, June 5, 2013: KDE 4.11 Soft Message Freeze

All translated messages (GUI strings) are frozen on this date. Only previously untranslated strings or clear errors in strings can be fixed. No major new strings changes should be done. You cannot add new strings, if you really need one ask kde-i18n-doc for an exception. It is ok to remove strings. Exception: Artwork (try to keep the number of new strings low anyways). Exception: Typo fixes can be fixed until the Hard Message Freeze, but you have to mail kde-i18n-doc saying you made a typo fix change.

Wednesday, June 5, 2013: KDE 4.11 Soft API Freeze
