The Feature Freeze stage is a very important step in the development of a GNU/Linux distribution, signaling the fact that the new features have already landed for the final release and that developers should now concentrate their efforts only on addressing critical bugs and other issues that might block the final release. At this point, there won't be any major new features or updated packages except for those that fix bugs. However, there are currently more than 870 packages stuck in the cosmic-proposed repository, so developers and contributors are now urged to resolve any issues and free as many packages as possible until the beta release.
