KDE Considering Three Month Release Schedule

Filed under

Àlex Fiestas, KDE developer, has recently proposed a three month release schedule for major releases as opposed to the six month schedule now being practiced. He says it should reduce work load and allow users to get new features quicker. According to his post, almost everyone is on-board with the idea.

Fiestas posted of his proposal on the KDE Core Developers mailing list yesterday saying, "the idea is to cut testing time and compensate it by keeping master always in a "releasable" state, now that two major components are frozen it looks like it is a good time to get used to it."
