In the "[boost] [1.47.0] Release branch now closed" thread, Daniel
James and I discussed possible schedules for 1.48:
Beman>>> While the release managers haven't talked about the 1.48.0 schedule
Beman>>> yet, I personally would like to get back to our traditional quarterly
Beman>>> schedule. That would mean 1.48.0 would be scheduled for the first
Beman>>> Monday in August.
Daniel>> We haven't got enough time for that. If we release 1.47 after a 2 week
Daniel>> beta (i.e. pretty quickly), it will be released on 4th July, leaving
Daniel>> just under a month before the first Monday in August.
Beman> Agreed, but we could aim for as short a 1.48 schedule as is reasonable
Beman> so that the 1.49 schedule is then back on the quarterly cycle.
A 1.48 beta 5 weeks after 1.47 ships seems doable. That would be about
August 8th, and then the release 3 weeks later, or about August 29.
The 1.49 release then would be back on schedule for the first Monday
To make the above happen, we would need to open branches/release for
merges immediately after 1.47 ships. Or maybe create a branch now for
