To give us little more time to get required stuff merged and fix nighty if required; we have postponed the stabilization week. The stabilization week starts on 1st November.
I request contributors, plugin maintainers and reviewers to focus on high priority pending stuff which requires attention.
This indeed means,
- Branching, RC1, RC2 and GA shifted by a week.
- The GA is closer to year end holidays. We have less time to play in RC phase if anything needs more time, as any more delays may postpone GA to next year.
