(all are in 2024)

  • KIP Freeze: 27nd March 15nd May (Wednesday)
    • A KIP must be accepted by this date in order to be considered for this release. Note, any KIP that may not be implemented in a week, or that might destabilize the release, should be deferred.
  • Feature Freeze: 10th April 29th May (Wednesday)
    • major features merged & working on stabilisation, minor features have PR, release branch cut; anything not in this state will be automatically moved to the next release in JIRA
  • Code Freeze: 24th April 12th June (Wednesday)
  • At least two weeks of stabilization will follow Code Freeze, meaning we expect to release no earlier than May 8th June 26th. We will move as fast as we can, and aim completion the earliest we can in MayJune.


These dates are goals and subject to change, but we expect to stay on the Time Based Release Plan unless unexpected critical issues come up. While the earliest possible release date is 2w after code freeze, release candidates (RCs) will roll out as needed until the release vote passes.

The release manager is <TBD> Josep Prat
