Release schedules are posted to the list. Here is the last one posted:


The schedule is slipping a little, as is usual for release schedules.

The 4.2.1EL version is ready to go, it will be finished real-soon-now.
Probably this weekend.

The 4.4.0 version has a couple minor issues outstanding. Such as the VNC
service not being enabled by default. I am also looking into fixing the
ktouch statistics.

As the previous release-schedule post states, the pre-releases can be
upgraded to the final release by using apt-get, up2date, or yum. You
don't have to re-install. If pre1 or pre2 works for you, go for it. Any
changes made between a pre-release and the final release will be picked
up by the software updates.
