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++.

We didn't make any of those goals though we did make some good progress towards them. Instead we have a GUI based on Gtk3, a new CSV importer, numerics that can handle more significant digits, some new editing capabilities for import maps and transaction attachments, and some new reports.

Schedule

We've begun the 2.7 testing cycle and we're hoping to release 2.8 sometime in the first quarter of 2018. The final part of the 2.7 release schedule leading up to that will depend on how quickly polishing up the remaining rough edges proceeds and how many bugs users find in early testing.

Release Planned Actual Notes
2.7.4 2018-TBD Tentative code and string freeze in January 2018.
2.7.3 2017-12-31

2.7.1 2017-10-29
2.7.0 2017-09-17 2017-10-17 Initial release

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 three months unless a major bug is reported that demands a release as soon as it is fixed.
