release_schedule - Perl 5 release schedule


This schedule lists the projected or historical development and release schedules for the next, current and previous stable versions of Perl. Dates with all question marks will only be releases if deemed necessary by the Pumpking.

Perl 5.20

Code freezes (which happen in the 5.19.X series)

  2014-01-20  5.19.8          Contentious changes freeze
  2014-02-20  5.19.9          User-visible changes freeze
  2014-03-20  5.19.10         Full code freeze
  2014-05-20  5.20.0          Stable release!

Perl 5.18

Release schedule (with release manager):

  2013-05-18  5.18.0 ✓        Ricardo Signes
  2013-08-12  5.18.1 ✓        Ricardo Signes
  2013-11-??  5.18.2          Ricardo Signes

(RC0 will be released once we think that all the blockers have been addressed. This typically means some time in April or May.)

Perl 5.16

Release schedule (with release managers):

  2012-05-20  5.16.0 ✓        Ricardo Signes
  2012-08-08  5.16.1 ✓        Ricardo Signes
  2012-11-01  5.16.2 ✓        Ricardo Signes
  2013-03-11  5.16.3 ✓        Ricardo Signes
  ????-??-??  5.16.4          ??


This schedule lists the release engineers for at least the next four months of releases of bleadperl. If there are fewer than four months listed as you make a release, it's important that you extend the schedule AND identify the next release engineer.

Before adding a release engineer, you must contact them and they must consent to ship the release.

When shipping a release, you should include the schedule for (at least) the next four releases. If a stable version of Perl is released, you should reset the version numbers to the next blead series.
