This schedule is our best guess at this point, in case the quality is not deemed good enough before the final release or the release of KDE Frameworks or the required Qt version is delayed, this schedule is subject to revision.
+
=== Current plans ===
 +
Releases of new versions are planned every 4 months (3 times a year). See ''Future releases'' for more details. "Normal" releases will stop receiving bugfixes as soon as the following release is available. The exception to this rule are LTS releases:
  
All deadlines are due '''midday''' UTC, but if you need a few more hours, notify someone from the release team.
+
=== LTS releases ===
 +
The current LTS release is '''Plasma 5.18'''. Following 5.18 LTS, our next Plasma 5 LTS will likely be at the same time as the first Plasma 6 release, no date has been set yet.
  
[https://phabricator.kde.org/calendar/ Calendar on Phabricator]
+
LTS releases receive updates for at least 1.5 years and might receive additional security bugfixes after that.

+
== Stages of releases ==
 +
=== Beta version ===
 +
Plasma currently only ships one Beta before every release.
  
== Release Series ==
+
The Beta of every release series of Plasma is tagged and released on Thursday following the corresponding [[Schedules/Frameworks|KDE Frameworks]] release (which is usually released on the second saturday of a month). The Repo freeze is 2 weeks before that.
  
The following table shows the '''currently supported release series'''' as well as the next planned release series.
+
=== Final version ===
 +
The first version of Plasma (.0) of every release series is tagged three weeks after the Beta (also on Thursday) and released on the following Tuesday.
 +
 
 +
=== Bugfix versions ===
 +
Bugfix tags/releases are made on Tuesdays in a Fibonacci sequence of weeks (1, 1, 2, 3, 5) after each previous release of the same series:

Latest revision as of 15:24, 17 September 2020

General

Purpose

This page contains the planned release schedule for Plasma 5.

This schedule is our best guess at this point, in case the quality is not deemed good enough before the final release or if the release of KDE Frameworks or the required Qt version is delayed, this schedule is subject to revision, especially in the case of important bugfixes or security issues.

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

Release mangler: Jonathan Riddell, Riddell in #plasma on Freenode

Current plans

Releases of new versions are planned every 4 months (3 times a year). See Future releases for more details. "Normal" releases will stop receiving bugfixes as soon as the following release is available. The exception to this rule are LTS releases:

LTS releases

The current LTS release is Plasma 5.18. Following 5.18 LTS, our next Plasma 5 LTS will likely be at the same time as the first Plasma 6 release, no date has been set yet.

LTS releases receive updates for at least 1.5 years and might receive additional security bugfixes after that.

Stages of releases

Beta version

Plasma currently only ships one Beta before every release.

The Beta of every release series of Plasma is tagged and released on Thursday following the corresponding KDE Frameworks release (which is usually released on the second saturday of a month). The Repo freeze is 2 weeks before that.

Final version

The first version of Plasma (.0) of every release series is tagged three weeks after the Beta (also on Thursday) and released on the following Tuesday.

Bugfix versions

Bugfix tags/releases are made on Tuesdays in a Fibonacci sequence of weeks (1, 1, 2, 3, 5) after each previous release of the same series:

Version Weeks after previous version
.1 1 week after .0
.2 1 week after .1
.3 2 weeks after .2
.4 3 weeks after .3
.5 5 weeks after .4
.6 (LTS-only) 8 weeks after .5
.7 (LTS-only) 13 weeks after .6
etc.
