- <h3 id="cycle">Cycle model</h3>
- <p>A typical release should be done after 3 months.
- <p>It is designed to allow DPDK to keep evolving at a rapid pace while
- giving enough opportunity to review, discuss and improve the contributions.
- <p>The merge window will open once the previous release is complete.
- First version of a new feature must be submitted before the proposal deadline.
- Features that miss this first period will be deferred until the next release.
- <p>Updated versions of patches (v2, v3, etc.) will be submitted to address comments.
- The new features must be properly reviewed, tested and accepted before the
- integration deadline. Otherwise, they will be postponed to the next releases.
- <p>At the end of the merge window, the first release candidate is out.
- <p>The last period is 1 month long and is dedicated to bug fixing.
- <h3 id="dates">Scheduling</h3>
- <p>18.08
- <ul>
- <li>Proposal deadline: June 8, 2018
- <li>Integration deadline: June 29, 2018

- <h2 id="stable">Stable releases</h2>
- <p>There is a documentation page describing the
- <a href="/doc/guides/contributing/stable.html">guidelines of the stable releases</a>.
- <p>Stable point releases follow mainline releases.
- <p>After each -rc tag and after the final version, relevant bug fixes get
- backported by the stable maintainers into the respective branches in "bursts".
- <p>Developers can provide stable-specific patches by sending them
- to stable@dpdk.org only (avoiding dev@dpdk.org).
- <p>After all the relevant bugfixes have been backported,
- regression tests are ran, and if clear, the stable release is announced.
- <p>Typically a new stable release version follows a mainline release
- by 1-2 weeks, depending on the test results.
