No, the plan is to release October 23rd, but the big official announcement and 
launch event is in January. So it might be good to plan to have a translated 
version of the desktop in January and not in October (thus planning 
_relative_ to January, not having the freeze in January).

This would make it possible to move the message freeze to a later date (say 
November). It obviously would also mean that the 4.0.0 release (which happens 
in October) wouldn't be translated that well, but I guess that would be ok, 
given that the focus of 4.0.0 is the platform and not the desktop. The 4.0.x 
release which is current at the launch event of course should be translated 
as well as possible.
