Just to let you all know that some freezes are coming up next week in preparation of the first 4.7 beta release. Some items of importance:

Thursday, May 12, 2011: KDE 4.7 Dependency Freeze
>From this moment on it is not allowed to add new dependencies or bump dependencies versions. It is possible to get an exception for this. Post the patch to reviewboard and add the release-team as reviewer. We will check if the dependency is needed and is available on all platforms.

In other words: If you have a feature that requires a new dependency or a version of a dependency that is higher than currently checked for in the build system, you need to have committed this change before this date.

Thursday, May 12, 2011: KDE 4.7 Hard Feature Freeze
Trunk is frozen for all feature commits, even those listed in the planned feature document. Only bug fixes are allowed.

Thursday, May 19, 2011: KDE 4.7 Beta 1 Tagging
Trunk is frozen for beta release tagging. Only urgent fixes, such as those fixing compilation errors, should be committed. The usual beta rules apply as soon as the Beta tarballs have been generated.

Wednesday, May 25, 2011: KDE 4.7 Beta 1 Release
The beta becomes available for general consumption.

The rest of the schedule is available at:
