See below the proposed schedule for the next Sugar release.
Since Etoys is part of Sugar, we will need to have some version ready for this.

> I have written a proposal for the new 0.88 schedule . Basically, I
> followed the GNOME schedule for 2.30 . Following in terms of dates,
> and I have added certain new freezes we did not have before.
> In detail:
> - tarballs due will be on Mondays, and the release on Wednesdays: I hope
> this will allow us to see the tarballs packaged by the end of the week
> by the distributions ---> getting more testing done over the weekend
> - UI Freeze added: No UI changes may be made without approval from the
> release-team and notification to the documentation list. Having such a
> freeze helps documentation efforts, and to not introduce workflow
> regressions and issues late in the cycle.
> - The feature freeze and API freeze is earlier compared to previous
> cycles. This should help to get a more stable release at the envisioned
> release date. After this shortened release cycle, from one feature
> freeze to the next one, there will be always 6 months. So the same
> amount of time to allow for development of features.
> - To allow for long term planning, I have drafted the 0.90 schedule, too
> . This should help to schedule bigger features.
> - Testing: I hope to see much much more testing in this release cycle.
> Two things should help here: a) I encourage the creation of a testing
> team. b) The 0.88 release will be packaged early. For testing purposes
> 0.88 will be packaged for F12. Other distributions are encouraged to do
> - Feature Process: We will follow the process  defined in the 0.86
> cycle. It will be communicated another time.
> - Getting it into a release: As we follow the same schedule as GNOME is,
> we should have no issues in getting our packages into the distributions
> in time. See the F13  for example.
