2 week push of Zephyr v3.3.0 feature freeze and release timelines

Murphy, Lauren

Hi Zephyr developers,

The TSC voted to push out the previously target dates for the Zephyr v3.3.0 release by 2 weeks to compensate for having 2 major holidays during release cycle (Christmas / New Year’s, Chinese New Year). This means that the feature freeze target date for Zephyr 3.3.0-RC1 will be on January 27th, three weeks from this announcement. The list of the next release milestones is as follows:


Feature freeze (RC1): January 27th

2nd Release Candidate (RC2): February 3rd

Hard Freeze (RC3): February 10th

Release (v3.2.0): February 17th


See https://github.com/zephyrproject-rtos/zephyr/wiki/Release-Management for the full list along with the target dates for the next major release. You can contact the release team anytime in the #release channel of the Zephyr Discord.
