A more relaxed release schedule, extending support out to a year with a maintenance phase.
The release that this proposal will be implemented for GeoServer 2.5.0.
Choose one of: Completed
Alleviate the pressure on users to stay up to date, and extend the support window to a year for embedded GeoServer users.
Drop back to releasing every two months, while extending releases out to a year with a new maintenance phase. This results in a "stable" and "maintenance" branch which release on alternate months.
Example of this staggered release idea.
Discussion looked at making stable releases more often, and less frequently for the maintenance phase. The alternate scheduling resulted in the occasionally month with three releases and the idea was dropped.
No backwards compatibility issues.
