Matplotlib 3.2 release schedule

Folks,

We discussed on the weekly call 2 weeks ago [1] the target dates for 3.2:

  • Create 3.2.x branch first week of August (aka, this week)

  • RC1 Third week of August (lets aim for Aug 18)

  • 3.2.0 on Sept 4

  • 3.1.2 concurrently with 3.2.0 (there are a few critical bug fixes)

This may be aggressive/ambitious, but lets give it a go!

We currently have 276 issues/prs tagged for 3.2 can people please start re-milestoning to 3.3.0 or marking as release critical.

Paul Ivanov has agreed to be the release manager for 3.2!

Tom
