The release

On 2015-07-13, Tau Labs shipped a release. This is the page that summarizes work on the next release cycle, aimed to be nominally 2.5 months long. The release is codenamed 'endomorphism' (name offered by @solidgoldbomb) This is to avoid issues where a release has been named something like "September release" in the past and then things got confusing when it didn't ship in September.

The release shipped on 2015-09-24, and can be found at: https://github.com/TauLabs/TauLabs/releases/tag/20150922 . The next release is Pyreneus.
