Arun is handling the tarballs (release candidates and final releases),
so the schedule is affected by how busy he is, but basically it should
work like this (this is my understanding - the process isn't currently
documented officially anywhere):

 1. publish a release candidate
 2. wait for a week (at least) for feedback
 3. if there are significant changes done during this time, goto 1
 4. if there are open release blocker bugs, fix them and goto 1
 5. publish the final tarball

The list of release blocker bugs is here (see the "Depends on" field):

That list isn't set to stone - for example, I doubt that there will be
any activity on 58758. I think Arun said that he intends to publish RC2
once he fixes 61262 - I don't know how soon that will happen. We will
anyway have at least one more release candidate, so the release is at
least a week away.

As for new features, I don't think we have anything major this time
(shell completion is cool, though). I haven't done the release notes yet
(should do soon...), so I don't have a clear picture of the details.
