Updated: March 3rd, 2015

The intent of this document is to notify you of upcoming Engine Yard release updates. This will be a rolling list; once a release occurs, the release notes will be removed from this document and will then appear in the current month's release notes.

Release schedule and contents:

  • Although we say we will release "Week of ...", we aim for a regular release cadence (Tuesdays, early p.m. Pacific time) for stack releases.
  • If we believe we can greatly improve quality by delaying a release, we will make the internal decision to delay.
  • If a feature does not pass QA, it might not appear in the next release.
  • If an urgent issue arises, it might be added to the feature list for this planned release.
