KDE provides minor point releases approximately every month after a major point release of the main modules.

As stable releases these are recommended to a wide user base who expect a high degree of stability. Changes should therefore be verifiable, reliable and regression free.

These releases must only contain:

  • Fixes for severe bugs: security vulnerabilities, severe regressions from previous releases, data loss bugs
  • Fixes for bugs which are easy to verify
  • Updated translations
  • Updated manuals

They must not contain:

  • API changes in public libraries
  • New strings

In case you need absolutely new API or new strings to fix a important bug, approval from the relevant teams is needed.

  • For API changes in public libraries you need the approval of kde-core-devel
  • For new strings you need the approval of kde-i18n-doc
