Future schedule is:

August, 31st - release

  o Release date
  o SF.net news item posted
  o Release announced on usual set of news sites
  o Website updated

Porters and port builders may start building binaries and uploading
them to sf.net. Please, not that this time the upload procedure altered
a bit. Basically you have several options:

  - Go to https://frs.sourceforge.net/webupload
  - SFTP to frs.sourceforge.net and upload to uploads/ directory.

Details are here:


And drop me a line with exact file name of your uploaded binary and
size (important!).

NOTE: Please, remember, that you should build ONLY from provided
tarballs or tags/release-0-12-0 /Without any modifications/. If you
will have to perform modifications, then we will have to retag, and all
builds submitted earlier will be obsolete.

Please, upload your binaries ASAP, so sf.net mirrors will pick up them
in a timely manner.
