Release Schedule for 2.7.x releases

Goal

Goals for 2.8.0:

  • Rewrite engine to remove dependencies on GLib/GObject using C++
  • Migrate from QofQuery to SQL Query
  • Make KVP a backend implementation detail; no direct KVP access except in the backends
  • Limit use of Guile to reports and F::Q; all other main application code should be C or C++.

Schedule

It's a bit premature to lay out a 2.7.x release schedule, but assuming the same 3 year cycle as we had for 2.6, 2.7.0 will be released in the late spring of 2017.


Release Schedule for 2.6.x releases

We will do monthly releases for three months to mop up all of the early bugs and then release about every 6 months unless a major bug is reported that demands a release as soon as it is fixed.
