Sucrose 0.85.7 Release Notes


This is really the last development release in the 0.86 release cycle - see the 0.86/Roadmap#Schedule for more details. Note, that we slipped the final 0.86 release by one week.

Please test the landed features carefully. More information about what is new in this release can be found in the 0.86/Notes - please mind that this is ongoing work. Please report any bug and workflow issue you find to get them in good shape for the final release. A friendly BugSquad will be available to triage those bugs accordingly and the developers can never have enough bug food. If you have non-bug feedback about features you can use the sugar-devel mailing list to share it with us.


There are no known compatibility issues, as of today.

Update to this version

Please use the instructions for your distribution (Fedora, Ubuntu, Debian etc) of choice to upgrade to this release.
