Mesa release manager Emil Velikov has laid out his draft of a release schedule for the next major Mesa release.

Emil has proposed that Mesa 13.1 be officially released around 3 February, but for that to happen the feature freeze and RC1 would be on 13 January followed by weekly release candidates until declaring it ready. This proposed Mesa 13.1 release schedule was laid out today on Mesa-dev.

Mesa 13.1 is shaping up to be a great release for all of the OpenGL and Vulkan drivers. It's going to be quite a feature-packed release and there's still one month and a half until it's expected to be released.

Last month there had been a proposal to move to a date-based versioning scheme for Mesa but so far it appears the conventional release schedule is continuing and thus Mesa 13.1, unless developers decide to change ahead of February.
