With 3.4.0 GA coming soon, it’s time to talk about the 3.5 timelines and schedule,
The 3.4 branched on 9th August, and to keep up our 3-month release cadence that would mean we should branch for 3.5 on 8th November.
- As before, we will be doing a stabilization week prior to branching to ensure we have working nightlies when branching.
- Larger changes should be merged as early as possible in the release cycle, to ensure enough time to fix bugs prior to branching.
- Keep in mind that installer module changes should also be merged prior to the stabilization week.
- As we near the branching date, we shall ask your cooperation in focusing more on stabilizing and bug fixing and less on new features.

If you have a significant change that you wish to get into 3.5, request to set the “Target Version” field on Redmine at least for the main tracker for the bug. We also request maintainers to make sure that when merged, any major features are added to the “highlighted features” section on the manual, and any deprecation or changes in behavior are also added to the relevant sections. If you wish to discuss any plans, this post’s comments can and should be used for that.
The versions of plugins and tools which are planned to be compatible with Foreman 3.5, request to add which you are aware about,
