Jump to: navigation, search

All deadlines are due 23:59 UTC, but if you need a few more hours, notify someone from the release team.

Applications in 14.12 can be based on kdelibs4 or KDE Frameworks 5 at maintainers decission, basically we will release whatever is in master of the repository. Please make sure all your dependencies or people that depend on you are aware of your decision to not cause problems.

You can also add http://www.kde.org/releaseschedule.ics as remote calendar to korganizer so you always have the release schedule near you.

Wednesday, October 29, 2014: KDE Applications 14.12 Message Freeze

All translated messages (GUI strings) are frozen on this date. Only previously untranslated strings or clear errors in strings can be fixed. No major new strings changes should be done. You cannot add new strings, if you really need one ask kde-i18n-doc for an exception. It is ok to remove strings.

Wednesday, October 29, 2014: KDE Applications 14.12 API Freeze

To allow the bindings people to have proper time to do their work in preparation to the final release, the API should now be fixed. Changing API is allowed, but commits have to be cc'ed to the kde-bindings mailinglist. This is including older APIs and newly introduced libraries/APIs.

Wednesday, October 29, 2014: KDE Applications 14.12 Dependency Freeze

From this moment on it is not allowed to add new dependencies or bump dependencies versions. It is possible to get an exception for this. Post the patch to reviewboard and add the release-team as reviewer. We will check if the dependency is needed and is available on all platforms.

In other words: If you have a feature that requires a new dependency or a version of a dependency that is higher than currently checked for in the build system, you need to have committed this change before this date.
