Upcoming Releases

The LLVM project has seen an increase in development over the last year and with all improvements it would be more beneficial to LLVM users to get releases out more frequently (every 3 months). Chris has asked me to send out a time line for the next 2 releases. This approach is different than previous releases.

Note that this is just a plan, it is subject to change if it is needed.

LLVM 1.8:
* July 12, 2006: Email sent out asking platform maintainers to XFAIL tests, check for regression/file bugs, and check in any final stuff for the release.
* July 19, 2006: Code freeze and release branch created. Documentation review.
* July 26, 2006: Pre-release online for testing
* August 2, 2006: Release

LLVM 1.9:
* October 30, 2006: Email sent out asking platform maintainers to XFAIL
tests, check for regression/file bugs, and check in any final stuff for
the release.
* November 6, 2006: Code freeze and release branch created. Documentation
review.
* November 13, 2006: Pre-release online for testing
* November 20, 2006: Release

If you have any feedback or suggestions, please send it to the list.

Thanks,
Tanya Lattner
