From the Calendar Weblog:

“We are currently planning to release a first release candidate at the beginning of April and release Sunbird 0.5 and Lightning 0.5 during the first half April.” Here’s the planned release schedule:

  • March 12 – string freeze – l10n begins
  • March 24 – code freeze (If it’s not in by now, it’s missing the bus.)
  • March 26 – functional testing by #calendar-qa, localizers check their work using nightlies
  • March 30 – l10n freeze
  • April 02 – first RC
  • April 08 – release date or second RC, in case RC 1 was not good enough
  • April 14 – release date, in case we need an RC 2

Note: Italics denote elapsed dates.

Functional testing of version 0.5 begins on Monday, 26 March 2007. “So, turn up your favorite music, download a nightly, and see how badly you can break it.”
