Latest revision as of 15:15, 7 December 2012

KDE SC 4.9 is a feature release for KDE SC 4. All dates given here are subject to revision, but we will try our best to stick to them if possible. The KDE Release Team is acting as the coordinator for this release.

All deadlines are due 23:59 UTC, but if you need a few more hours, notify someone from the release team.

(the below schedule is generated based on software. Don't edit below, but edit the software and regenerate the schedule.)

You can also add http://www.kde.org/releaseschedule.ics as remote calendar to korganizer so you always have the release schedule near you.

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.

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.
