See DapperReleaseSchedule for the final DapperReleaseSchedule.


Dapper is a long term supported release; its release cycle will be RIGID and BORING. Nevertheless, we need to consider some tweaks to our standard release schedule to make sure we can deliver on the promise of a super-stable and ultra-polished Ubuntu for the masses.

The documentation team wants the UserInterfaceFreeze and the ArtworkFreeze toughened up and clarified, in order to be able to deliver screenshots in time.


We propose to make the following changes to the process that was followed during the development of Breezy:

The Distribution

Documentation and Translation

Hardware Certification

DeveloperResources has the freeze exception process

GNOME 2.13.x/2.14 release schedule
