Hi all --

Let's move the dates:

 - Feature Freeze on May 18, 23:59 AOE
-> 11 days to go
 - Beta/RC testing until June 5, 23:59 AOE
-> 30 days to go

I will not be available from May 20 to May 27.

Let's hope we can fix the source.squeak.org issues
in time and also resolve that unnecessarily effortful
discussion on primitive 126 in the OSVM [1] by then.

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.

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.
