Hello developers and translators,
After talking this over with Jonathan we've agreed that the time is
right to be working towards a new release of SM-1_4-STABLE, version
1.4.5. We've got over 60 fixes in the changelog that would be nice to
make available to our users.
- Now: we've got a little time to determine if some bugs really need
to be fixed before this release (see below).
- From now until June 5th: work together to fix those, and of course to
fix other bugs aswell. No new features at this stage please.
- June 5th: start of 1.4-freeze where only approved updates go in;
strings are frozen, of start translating.
- June 15th: release candidate 1
- June 28th: deadline for translation updates
- June 29th (if rc): release 1.4.5
If you've got a bug that you really think should be fixed before 1.4.5,
please speak up now we've still got some time. It helps if the bug is in
the tracker so we can see its status. If it's not in the tracker please
add it. Bugs that are a regression since 1.4.4 (i.e.: it worked in 1.4.4
and was broken since) definately should be fixed. Bugs with easy or
straightforward fixed will also qualify. Bug for which no clear solution
is available yet will have to be judged on a case-by-case basis.
Translators: we've got over three weeks for the translations. If you
want more time you can of course start now since we don't expect too
much strings to change anymore (but that will only be certain as of June
During the freeze you can only commit things you've checked with the
stable lead first (through email or IRC), except for documentation and
I think yet again we'll be producing the best SquirrelMail release up to
date, and I want to thank everyone who helped with that in advance!
As of now, stable CVS is frozen. You can commit only: pure documentation
updates, and patches that are pre-approved by the stable team.
From now on, no strings shall be changed until the release, unless there's
some very pressing reason which will be discussed first. That means
translators can start to work on updating their translations.
The following schedule will proceed unmodified.
