I would like to see DrGeo shipped in this next version if possible.
It will make easier for XO user to save/load project with interactive geometry.

>> Subject: [Sugar-devel] Roadmap to 0.88 --- Proposal
>> 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.
