Hi all --

The connectivity to source.squeak.org is not good at the moment.

We did a recent upgrade to use Squeak 5.3 and OSVM RC3 (20220419), which might require a little bit more effort to make things smooth again.

If the issues persist throughout this week, we will move the deadlines.

Hi all! --

Let's do this.

 - Feature Freeze on May 6, 23:59 AOE
-> 11 days to go
 - Beta testing until May 15, 23:59 AOE
-> 20 days to go
 - Picking a release candidate until May 18, 23:59 AOE
-> 23 days to go

The current state of tests can be found here:
 - https://github.com/squeak-smalltalk/squeak-app/actions
 - https://github.com/marceltaeumel/squeak-ffi/actions

Download the latest squeak-app bundles from here:
 - http://files.squeak.org/6.0alpha/
 - http://files.squeak.org/6.0beta/ (after May 6)
 - http://files.squeak.org/6.0rc1/ (after May 15)
 - http://files.squeak.org/6.0rc2/
 - ...

Please report bugs here on squeak-dev or on GitHub:
 - https://github.com/squeak-smalltalk/squeak-object-memory/issues

After the Feature Freeze, this will happen in the Trunk Update Stream:
 - Unload 60Deprecated via postload-script
 - Adapt "SqueakVersion" to keep build number stable
 - Add "Load deprecated methods" to preference wizard
 - Update update map to not include 60Deprecated anymore

After the release, this will happen in the Trunk Update Stream:
 - Add new 61Deprecated package
 - Trunk open for the features again
 ! Discuss the critical ones via Inbox as usual

Meanwhile, the release versions of all packages will be copied over to source.squeak.org/squeak60.
