This week marks the conclusion of Sprint 10‘s primary development cycle. At the beginning of next week, a release branch will be cut from dev-3.x and YUI 3.13.0-rc-1 will be released shortly thereafter. After a week of testing and showstopper bug fixing, the release for YUI 3.13.0 will be targeted for Tuesday, October 8th.
There’s only 7 weeks until YUIConf 2013! This week the Call for Speakers deadline was announced, so if you have a talk you’d like to propose, email your idea to yui-events (at) yahoo-inc.com by October 11th. Check out the announcement for more details.
