GNOME 44 Schedule

This is the development schedule for GNOME 44.

Important information for module maintainers:

  • Tarballs are due by 23:59 UTC on the Saturday specified
  • Freezes begin by 23:59 UTC on the Saturday specified
  • In order to ensure adequate testing, core modules should try to release according to the unstable schedule if they have nontrivial changes.
  • Core modules are not expected to follow the schedule for stable releases. Instead, please release when you judge that a new stable release is required. Modules released before the deadline will be included in the next update of the GNOME runtime.
  • The .0 stable release is special. All modules that had an unstable release during the release cycle must release to ensure a stable version number, even if there have been no changes since the previous release.
  • How and where to request freeze breaks

  • Branching practices

  • There's a MaintainersCorner wiki page with general helpful information

  • Please report any improvements against the release notes project
