Key dates for the 3.6.0 Release

This is a repost of my post over at

We are rapidly closing in on the 3.6.0 release, so I thought it would be good remind everyone of the key dates.

  • Feature freeze � 22 September 23:59 UTC � From this point on, no new features will be considered for inclusion into 3.6.0
  • String freeze � 8 October 23:59 UTC � no bugs that change templates accepted after this point. This allows the translators to translate without things changing on them
  • Translations finished 18 October 23:59 UTC � Translations submitted, so that they can be tested before release
  • Release 22 October

And just a point, translators should not feel they need to wait until the 8th to start translating, but should begin as soon as they are able.
