View Full Version : Change to release schedule for Dapper

March 20th, 2006, 10:48 PM
<p>While the change in schedule has been publicized throughout the web, <a class="glossary-term" href="glossary#term8"><acronym title="sabdfl: Mark Shuttleworth, the Self-Appointed Benevolent Dictator For Life">sabdfl</acronym></a> just made the <a href="https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/ubuntu-announce/2006-March/000058.html">official announcement</a> detailing the six week delay in the Dapper release. The exact <a href="https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DapperReleaseSchedule">schedule</a> has already been posted. The magic day is now Just 1st 2006, so keep the beer chilled for just a bit longer. Note that: </p>
<blockquote><p>This is not a general relaxation of the freeze process. While there are some new features that are being integrated, the general stabilisation and bug fixing freeze remains in place, with some specific exceptions.</p></blockquote>
<p>This is extra time is also an excellent time for our multilingual volunteers to get in some last minute polish. Dafydd Harries is <a href="https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/ubuntu-devel-announce/2006-March/000097.html">asking</a> for some help in bringing the localization efforts up to par, especialy for “those languages with complex display and input requirements like Korean, Japanese and Chinese in all its variants.”</p>
