Release Cycle

We do releases every 8 weeks on Wednesdays. If critical problems arise, we can insert releases outside of the schedule or we can move the release date - but this is rare.

Each 8 week release cycle is split in two 4-week periods.

If a future release date happens to end up on a "bad date", like in the middle of common public holidays or when the lead release manager is away traveling, the release date can be moved forwards or backwards a full week. This is then advertised well in advance.

Coming dates

Based on the description above, here are some planned release dates (at the time of this writing):
