We are fans of "time-boxed" release cycles, which means that we prioritize and work on features, enhancements, bug fixes, and other changes during that time and release at the end of the window. Anything left undone is pushed to the next release. Of course, during the cycle we try to make sure that we're prioritizing correctly, and toward the end we push issues that we know we won't get to.
We're now only a few weeks away from the 3.4 release, and still more JIRA issues targeted to be fixed in 3.4 than we can actually fix. So, it's time to start figuring out which issues we can realistically finish in 3.4 and which can or need to be pushed into 3.5.
Please join us if you're working on any tasks or simply are interested to follow along.
