Roadmap to 1.2

The release process will consist of the following steps.

  • Creation of the SVN 1.2 fixes branch (Done 15 Sept 2013)
  • Publication of Lazarus 1.1.99 pre-release (Done 18 Sept 2013)

This will be an early alpha of the upcoming 1.2. It will be available to anyone who wants to help testing. Testers should treat this release with similar caution as the daily snapshots. The testing period is scheduled to last 6 to 8 weeks.

  • Release of 1.2 RC 1 (Early/Mid November 2013)

This will be the first Release Candidate. We would like to urge all suers to test this version. The testing period is scheduled to last 6 to 8 weeks.

  • Release of 1.2 RC 2 (Mid/End December 2013 / Early 2014)

The testing period is scheduled to last 6 to 8 weeks.

  • Maybe 1.2 RC 3

An RC 3 may be scheduled, if necessary.

  • Release of Lazarus 1.2 (between Feb and Apr 2014)
