Hi everyone,

Here's the tentative release schedule for 1.8:

 18 Dec 2015: 1st pre-release

 08 Jan 2016: 2nd pre-release + freeze for major changes

 22 Jan 2016: release candidate 1 + full freeze

 29 Jan 2016: release candidate 2 (if needed)

 05 Feb 2016: 1.8.0 release

As you can see, this cycle will be rather short, but the plan is to get
back on track and do 6-monthly releases going forward.

All major changes (that is new elements, new plugins, major
refactorings, new features, any intrusive or risky changes) should have
landed in git master by the beginning of January, and ideally even
before the first pre-release.

Happy hacking!
