Bodhi 4.0.0 Time Lines and June 2016 Donation Totals

Last month I hinted at the first Bodhi 4.0.0 pre-release happening soon, but then June came and went with no more news. One of my goals for the 4.0.0 release is to realign our core Enlightenment Foundation Libraries with the latest upstream release. Their 1.18 release has been pushed back for several weeks due to the number of things it is integrating (namely the Elementary widgets are part of the core toolkit now) and ideally I would like to include this release by default in Bodhi 4.0.0.

The targeted release for an alpha snapshot of the 1.18 EFL libraries is July 18th and assuming they hit that goal we should have an alpha Bodhi 4.0.0 release shortly there after. If the E team has more delays past this, I will start preparing the first Bodhi 4.0.0 discs with the existing 1.17.x EFL / Elementary releases. My goal is to have a 4.0.0 release tagged as our stable release by the end of August shortly after Ubuntu 16.04.1 releases. As always we are a “release when ready” project rather than rushing to meet a deadline, so keep in mind all of these dates are tentative.

The June Donation totals have also been added to our donations list.
