-======Milestones to 4.6======

-**Release process:** 
-  - NEWS files 
-    * Ask module maintainers to update their NEWS in svn 
-    * Create HTML release notes for website from NEWS files

-  - Update ChangeLogs (only for module maintainers who use svn2cl) 
-  - Bump version numbers (drop '​svn'​ tag) 
-  - Rebuild po/*.po to update Project-Id-Version and prevent problems during make distcheck. 
-  - Tag the release in svn 
-  - Make release packages 
-    * .tar.bz2 of each module (create with 'make distcheck'​) 
-    * "​Fat"​ tarball of all .tar.bz2 modules 
-    * GUI installer package 
-  - Generate MD5 and SHA1 checksums, and GPG signatures for each module 
-  - Upload tarballs (only tar.bz2) to main server (request mirror maintainers to do a manual sync) and Sourceforge 
-  - Release announcements/​websites:​ 
-    * xfce.org main page 
-    * Freshmeat 
-    * Gnomefiles 
-    * Slashdot ​ (only for 4.x.0 releases)
