currently ongoing Development Phase Support Xfce Supervise development, remind people of deadlines Porting to Gtk+ 3 and gdbus (no new features).
Release Phase Wait patiently Perform releases, remind people of deadlines Perform releases of own components if desired
Xfce 4.14pre1 (Soft String Freeze) Prepare release announcements, release Xfce 4.14pre1 Make sure the latest development release is in good shape and uploaded. Try to avoid making string changes since this release will most likely skip pre3!
