A new quarter has begun so let's see which releases we're cooking
before the end of this year. :)

== Stable v2019.5 and v2020.3

Updates to the stable v2019 and v2020 channels, shipping the latest
security fixes.

== Preview v2021pre

The release on the v2021 channel that will lead to the stable v2021.0
release in 2021Q1.

The only significant change expected for this releaseĀ is the kernel
update from version 5.7 to the latest LTS that will be released later
in the quarter.

Product teams are recommended to start playing with v2021pre once it is
released to get an early feeling of the latest release channel based on
Debian 10 Buster.

== Development v2022dev0

The first development release on the v2022 channel, which will lead to
the v2022.0 release in 2022Q1.

While v2022dev0 will still be based on Debian 10 Buster, v2022 is
expected to be based on Debian 11 Bullseye. Given that the Bullseye
soft freeze is planned in Feb 2021 and the hard freeze in March 2021
the current plan is to prepare for the rebase in the v2022dev1 cycle in
2021Q1 and then go ahead with the rebase in 2021Q2 for v2022dev2, which
will be the first release based on Bullseye.
