=== Schedule ===
 
We've begun the 2.7 testing cycle and we're hoping to release 3.0 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.

;Important: [[String Freeze]] starts 2 weeks before the planned release date.
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.

  • Make KVP a backend implementation detail; no direct KVP access except in the backends
