Release Schedule for 2.2.x (Stable)

We don't have an actual schedule yet. We only know we plan for a stable 2.2.x release every 3-6 weeks in order to make available the bugfixes and translation updates.

The last Series 2.2 release was 2.2.9, in February 2009. The 2.2 branch is no longer developed, even for bugfixes.

Release Schedule for 2.1.x (Unstable)

This is a draft release schedule for unstable 2.1.x releases of gnucash, which will eventually lead to the stable 2.2.0 release of gnucash with new features.

Goal

Goal for 2.2.0: Now that the gnome2 port is working well, we are introducing some new features. These are

  •  ?
  • Scheduled Transactions re-work.
  • Port to Windows available

Purpose of all 2.1.x releases: Any 2.1.x is not yet stable, but is meant to provide easier access to the current source code for wider testing. Also, at some point in time the 2.1.x series should go into a string freeze so that translators can fully concentrate on their translation work.

PR_planning page

Requirements of 2.1.x releases

  • Any 2.1.x has to offer full backward-compatibility of the data file. It should always be possible to use a 2.1.x-saved XML datafile again with any 2.0.x version. This is achieved by the "allow_file_incompatibility" gconf key as introduced in r15612, explained also here.
  • Bugzilla queries for the list of bugs assigned to those milestones:

Caveats

Caveats for testers:

  • Any 2.1.x version might crash unexpectedly at any point during runtime. If you test some serious work in a 2.1.x release, make sure you hit "Save" after ever non-trivial workstep.
  • The documentation has had screenshots updated, however, most help texts usually only refers to the 2.0.x or even 1.8.x series. Everyone is invited to help improve the documentation; see Contributing to GnuCash on how to get involved.

  • 2.1.4 June 16; Announcement 2.1.4; Release Candidate One i.e. final bugfixes (esp. windows), final translation updates. We need the next 2 weeks for PR planning, and we need qualified feedback whether this release works fine for Windows users
  • 2.1.5 July 2; Announcement 2.1.5; Release Candidate Two i.e. final bugfixes (esp. windows), final translation updates.
  • 2.2.0 July 15 2007; Announcement 2.2.0; Keep in mind that the (Unix) source package and the Windows binary have to be ready by that date. PR planning

We maintian an archive page of older release announcements.

Release Schedule for 1.9.x (Unstable)

This is a draft release schedule for unstable 1.9.x releases of gnucash, which will eventually lead to the stable 2.0.0 release of gnome2-based gnucash.

Goal

Goal for 2.0.0: For the first 2.0.0 release the plan is to finish porting those parts of gnucash that have already been started (i.e. new windowing system, account tree, commodities tree, etc.), but not to port any additional features unless absolutely required.

Purpose of all 1.9.x releases: Any 1.9.x is not yet stable, but is meant to provide easier access to the current source code for wider testing. Also, at some point in time the 1.9.x series should go into a string freeze so that translators can fully concentrate on their translation work.

Requirements of 1.9.x releases

Caveats

Caveats for testers:

  • Any 1.9.x version might crash unexpectedly at any point during runtime. If you test some serious work in a 1.9.x release, make sure you hit "Save" after ever non-trivial workstep.
  • The documentation has had screenshots updated, however, most help texts usually only refers to the 1.8.x series. Everyone is invited to help improve the documentation; see Contributing to GnuCash on how to get involved.

Schedule
