RKWard 0.6.5

Feature Plan

Feature Plan

Development snapshots

Several options exist for following the development version of RKWard.

Tentative timeline

Preview release(s)

A preview release (0.6.5-pre1) will become available roughly March 11, 2016. More preview releases may be created during the testing phase on an as needed basis.

  • Call for testing: to be done.

Testing phase

The testing phase will be open until March 24, 2016. The phase may be extended, if needed, but please try to provide all substantial testing feedback by this date.

Deadline for translations

The deadline for translations ends with the testing phase, on March 24, 2016. Please supply your translations before this date. See http://l10n.kde.org for information on how to get involved with translations. Contact us on the mailing list, if you need assistance.

Release candidate / packaging

Subject to the outcome of the testing phase, a 0.6.5-rc1-release will be prepared on or around March 25, 2016, and will appear in http://files.kde.org/rkward/testing/for_packaging/. Packagers are encouraged to start producing packages based on this release (with details to be announced on the mailing list).

The intent is to release the final version with no change with respect to the release candidate (except for the version number). Only grave bugs will prompt another rc-release. Minor bugs reported after the rc1-release will have to wait for the next release cycle.

Packagers: If you intend to publish packages before the official release, please make sure that the version number contains some indication that this is not the "official" version, yet (e.g. a "-rc1" suffix). Otherwise, if we do need to make a last-minute change to fix an important problem, this may result in different versions floating with the same version number, and serious confusion.

Official release

The targetted official release date for RKWard 0.6.5 is April 2, 2016.
