This is to announce that we plan to release R version 2.5.1 on Thursday
June 28, 2007. The following information is mainly for developers,
package maintainers and repository maintainers.
The planned procedure is
June 14: Feature Freeze 2.5.1 beta
June 21: Code Freeze 2.5.1 RC
June 28: Release 2.5.1
FF: Feature set complete, only bugfixing from now on
CF: Only critical bugfixes and platform build issues
Maintainers of recommended packages should notice that as they become
part of the final R tarball, we expect them to follow a similar freeze
pattern (and beware of potential CRAN delays, so please do not cut it
too close to the deadlines).
The source beta/RC tarballs will be made available daily
(barring build troubles) by a cron job running at 4AM CET, and the
tarballs can be picked up at
a little later.
The various freeze points are marked by changes to the VERSION file
this is also done automatically by a cron job which runs just after
midnight on the relevant days.
