Test-Simple, updated release plan

After talking with the toolchain, and Ricardo Signes, a new Test-Simple release plan has been made. The Test-Simple release will sync up with blead and the 5.22.0 release (well, kind of).

This is the perl release schedule:


  • 2015-01-20 5.21.8 Contentious changes freeze

  • 2015-02-20 5.21.9 User-visible changes freeze

  • 2015-03-20 5.21.10 Full code freeze

  • 2015-05-20 5.22.0 Stable release!

We settled on 2015-03-19 as the Test-Simple release date. The idea is to release Test-Simple AFTER the user-visible change freeze, providing a few weeks of much more rigorous adoption/testing. However We also want to release with a good amount of time before the perl-stable release so that if anything critical is found by a release it can be put into blead before 5.22.0 is out.

So on 2015-03-19 a patch will go to blead changing the version number of Test-Simple such that it will no longer be a trial. The same day a cpan release will be made marking the new internals of Test-Simple as stable.
