Here is a proposed release schedule for 0.19.0, the next major release of Bitcoin Core. Like for previous major releases I've aimed for a release 6 months after the last ( #14438).

2019-09-01 馃毀

  • Open Transifex translations for 0.19
  • Soft translation string freeze (no large or unnecessary string changes until release)
  • Finalize and close translations for 0.17

2019-09-15 馃毀

  • Feature freeze (bug fixes only until release)
  • Translation string freeze (no more source language changes until release)

2019-10-01 馃毀

  • Split off 0.19 branch from master
  • Start RC cycle, tag and release 0.19.0rc1
  • Start merging for 0.20 on master branch

2019-11-03 馃毀

  • Release 0.19.0 final (aim)

If any specific dates or timeframes are a problem for you, let me know.

Edit: schedule was moved two months back on 2019-05-07, for reference, the old schedule was:

2019-11-01    Soft translation string freeze
2019-11-15    Feature freeze
2019-12-01    Split off 0.19 branch from master
2020-01-03    Release 0.19.0 final (aim)

@moneyball correctly remarked that these dates start off the process at the projected release date (6 months after 0.18.0, so, 2019-11-01) instead of aiming to do the release then. Should we move this this schedule two months back?

2019-09-01    Soft translation string freeze
2019-09-15    Feature freeze
2019-10-01    Split off 0.19 branch from master
2019-11-03    Release 0.19.0 final (aim)
