Status: General Oneiric

Following the Beta-1 release last Thurs, we uploaded the 3.0.0-10.16 Ubuntu kernel on Fri. I would like to remind everyone that Kernel Freeze is next week Thurs Sept 15. After that, all patches are subject to our SRU policy in order to be applied. I’m planning on 2 more uploads prior to kernel freeze, one at the end of this week, and one early next week.

Some important upcoming dates to keep in mind are as follows:

  • Sept 15 – Kernel Freeze (~1 week)
  • Sept 22 – Beta 2 (~2 weeks)
  • Oct 13 – Final Release (~5 weeks)

    I’d also like to note that the P-series git repo was recently rebased to v3.1-rc5. It’s available at git:// master-next .
