The last day to commit changes to the current Bioconductor devel branch 3.8 to be included in the release is Monday October 29th.  We highly recommended making changes before this date to ensure that your package gets a daily build report and passes cleanly.  After this date any bug corrections will need to be applied to the RELEASE_3.8 and master (devel 3.9) branch.

Every release,  we collate a release announcement based on the NEWS files and new packages submitted.  This is last releases example


If you would like your NEWS file to be included in the release 3.8 announcement, it must be updated by Monday October 29th and be formatted correctly.  If it is not updated by Monday or formatted incorrectly, it will not be included in the  release announcement.

We have expanded the package guidelines documentation to have some useful code to aid in formatting the NEWS file http://bioconductor.org/developers/package-guidelines/#news

If you are having any troubles or concerns please reach out on the mailing list bioc-devel using r-project.org.

Please see the release schedule for all upcoming deadlines


Thank you and thank you for your contributions to Bioconductor.
