TeX Live 2012 Schedule
Today Karl Berry announced on the TeX Live mailing list, that in about one week (May 10) TeX Live 2011 and tlnet will be frozen, and the building of the pretest version of TeX Live 2012 will start shortly after that.
So the schedule for the release of TeX 2012 is, as it can be read on the TeX Live homepage:
- May 10: TeX Live 2011 and tlnet frozen
- About 2 weeks: CTAN updates continue, pretesting starts
- May 24: Also CTAN updates stop, updates only on request
- May 31: Complete freeze, some time for testing and documentation
- June 14: Final images for the TeX Collection DVD
- In August: DVDs will be delivered to TUG members.
This is the plan, changes are still possible as it depends on the time of the developers and contributors.
