Why not start discussing them now?

A starter for the discussion -
Release 3.5
- Include the ClassBuilder stuff
- Include what MCP accomplished
- Refactorings making various parts of the image easily removable.
 (was  in 3.4 - http://swiki.squeakfoundation.org/squeakfoundation/79)
- Have it tested with 1000 unit tests before releasing 3.5 final.

Release date for 3.5 beta  - End of March
Release date for 3.5 gamma - End of April
Release date for 3.5 final - End of May

Motto - a fresh Squeak!
or - a tested and polished Squeak!

Release 3.6  (final for end of August)
Include basic Zurgle refactorings ?
Include Anthony Hannans work ?
Have a clean up of MetaClass and Co by Berne ?

Motto - <no idea yet>

Release 3.7 (final scheduled for end of November)

Have documentation updated and
integrated in various ways with the image.

Core is "only" 1000 classes.

"Virtual Releases" - 
Anglo-Saxon edition (the current stream)
International edition (Nihongo and others, UCS/Unicode integrated into
the VM)
Berne edition (Language experiments - alternate syntaxes)
