v2.7.2-rc1 April 15 / v2.7.2 April 22

Christopher Friedt

Hi Zephyr Community!

Over the last 2 months, we have been working with maintainers to
ensure that important fixes have been backported from main into the
v2.7-branch. It has been almost 5 months since the v2.7.1 release, and
developers are starting to ask when to expect v2.7.2.

I'm happy to share that these dates will be:
- v2.7.2-rc1 on Friday April 15th
- v2.7.2 on Friday April 22nd (after a 1 week soak period)

If there are any additional high or medium priority bugfixes that have
been vetted in main but are missing from v2.7-branch, please get in
touch ASAP with the relevant subsystem maintainer as well as the
release team (via email, Discord, or GitHub).

Additionally, the Process Working Group will be putting some machinery
in place to publish Point Releases on a regular basis. That should
help you, our community, to plan your own development cycles. Please
keep an eye out for the announcement from the Process Working Group.

Thanks to all Maintainers and Contributors who helped to improve LTSv2
