We're just a couple of days from branching S2_5 02-May. My timezone is EEST (UTC +3), and I'm about start the branching activities as soon as clock hits 00:00 here. So for you in western Europe, let alone in Americas, it will be still 01-May.
After the bracnhing we will have four active branches: S2_3, S2_4, S2_5 and TRUNK. That's more thna we'd like to divide our attention to, but at the same time we don't want to postpone branching further and letting even more new features to get in to trunk then to be polished in stable branch forever. Let's hope that time between S2_5 branching and 2.5.0 release is not longer than the road from S2_4 to 2.4.0 has been. I'll refresh all po-files under version control against latest strings before the branching. One of the new features in 2.6 is inclusion of Alien World ruleset ( http://www.cazfi.net/freeciv/alien/ ). Strings from the ruleset will be added to trunk translation as soon as S2_5 has been safely branched without the strings. I'll upload po-files with these strings to http://www.cazfi.net/freeciv/translations/S2_6/ within 24 hours from the branching. Next milestone for 2.5 after branching will be datafile format and network protocol freezes. We are not yet even planning the dates for these, but please make any tickets that must go in before the freezes as dependency of the relevant task-tickets, so once we start to plan the dates, we see what needs to be done. - ML
