Subject: KOffice release schedule updated
Date: Wed, 30 May 2001 09:54:33 +0200
From: David Faure <david@mandrakesoft.com>

Here's a proposal for the schedule of the next koffice releases : (also available on
http://developer.kde.org/development-versions/koffice-1.1-release-pl an.html)

This schedule plans a beta 3, a release candidate, and then 1.1-final, with a translated-message freeze of ... hmm, 2 months (maybe that's longer than necessary ?).

KOffice 1.1 Beta 3


  • Monday June 11 The HEAD branch of KOffice is frozen : no new features, bugfixes commits only, no commit that modifies an application's behaviour, and *message freeze*. This freeze will last till the release of KOffice 1.1!
  • Monday June 18 The HEAD branch of CVS is tagged KOFFICE_1_1_BETA3, and tarballs are made. They are made public immediately, and given to packagers for creation of binary packages.
  • Monday June 25 Announce KOffice 1.1 Beta 3

KOffice 1.1 Release Candidate


  • Monday July 9 KOffice goes into deep-freeze. All commits should be posted for review first.
  • Monday July 16 The HEAD branch of CVS is tagged KOFFICE_1_1_RC1, and tarballs are made. They are made public immediately, and given to packagers for creation of binary packages.
  • Monday July 23 Announce KOffice 1.1 Release Candidate

KOffice 1.1 final


  • Sunday August 5 Last day for translations, documentation, icons and critical bugfixes commits.
  • Monday August 6 The HEAD branch of CVS is tagged KDE_2_2_RELEASE and the day is spent testing the release a final time.
  • Tuesday August 7 The tarballs are made and released to the packagers.

The rest of the week is spent testing the tarballs, packaging and writing the announcement and changelog.

  • Friday August 10 The source and binary packages are uploaded to ftp ftp.kde.org to give some time for the mirrors to get them.
  • Monday August 13 Announce KOffice 1.1.

Feedback welcome !
