Testing 10.9.0

We are pleased to announce that we are now in our feature freeze window for the 10.9.0 release! That means that from now until the release, we'll be focusing only on merging bugfixes and other improvements, while all features will be on hold until the release is finalized.

That also means it's time to start testing. As outlined in our last blog post, we're doing things a bit differently this release, so this post will provide the steps one would need to take to help us test the new release.

If you want to help out, please read on!

New CI, New Repo, A Renewed Push for 10.9.0

· 15 min read

Over the last several weeks, I've been driving a major push to revamp and improve our CI, in an effort to improve our release workflow, our velocity of releases, and the burden they have on me as the release manager. This post will detail the changes we've made, how they might affect you as a user or contributor, and how we're planning to proceed with our 10.9.0 release cycle.


  1. We have a new repository browser UI along with a new file layout, on a new master repository machine, built by new CI, that will hopefully make it nicer to look around and get right to what you need. This has now been cut over into production, but is still a bit of a work in progress, so please report any bugs you find to us! Note that quite a number of paths will have changed (anything under /server especially), but some will remain the same. If you get a 404 and can't find it through the browser UI, best to check in. 3rd party packagers downloading files manually from us are advised to contact us if needed.

  2. We are dropping non-LTS Ubuntu packages, dropping our own Fedora/CentOS packages in favour of RPMFusion builds, and adding GHCR as a container repository for our Docker images.

  3. For 10.9.0, we will not be producing explicit "beta" releases. Instead, we will test using our new Weekly Unstable builds. Once the master branch is sufficiently stable and good, we will release 10.9.0 directly from there (via our standard release branch process).

  4. The 10.9.0 feature freeze (bugfix PRs only after this) will tentatively begin on Monday, March 18th. The hope is that all of the above will be ready by then so that obtaining Unstable builds for testing will be easy.

  5. The 10.9.0 release itself is tentatively planned for the last weekend in April. To all 3rd parties who build packages of our releases, please read until the end for an important note about this release.
