Zeitgeist Project to go for stable release cycles

I think the title says it all. With the Zeitgeist deployment progressing, we see more soft & hard - dependencies on the Zeitgeist modules. Currently we plan 2 releases ahead based on the amount of bugs and blueprints we have open.

The core modules of Zeitgeist now consist of:

Then we have the wrapper around our D-Bus API: And last but not least comes: Sadly all those modules till now do not have the same version number. This makes it very hard for downstream projects to package and find dependencies. Also upstream need to now what they need something to depend on.

So to get to the point we decided to release ALL MODULES together 4 times a year.

The dates of the releases are more or less static:

Also all of the releases will follow the same version schema. So with the next releases we will be all bumped to 0.8.x where the "x" represents module internal fixes.

We will be setting up a wikipage with more details next week.By then also all API documentations will then be found on our website.
