Dear NixOS community,
I am Ryan Lahfa, the primary release manager for NixOS 23.05 (“Stoat”).
As we gear up for the upcoming release cycle of NixOS 23.05, I want to take a moment to express my heartfelt gratitude to each and every one of you. Your contributions, dedication, and passion have been the driving force behind the success of this incredible operating system, and I am continually inspired by the collaborative spirit and unwavering commitment of this community.
With every release cycle, we have the opportunity to build upon the solid foundation of NixOS and make it even better. Whether it’s fixing bugs, adding new NixOS modules, new major packages, upgrading them, improving performance overall or strengthening reliability, every contribution counts and plays a vital role in shaping NixOS.
So, let’s have a great 23.05 release cycle! I’m excited to see what we can achieve together, and I have no doubt that this community will once again rise to the occasion and make this release cycle one to remember.
Again, thank you all for your hard work, dedication, and support.
With that announcement, I’d also like to publish the current release schedule which is on GitHub for editability. Since we’ve got a few weeks until the major lifting begins, feel free to brainstorm any further ideas, improvements or even just comments or concerns in either this thread or on the GitHub issue.
The issue about the feature freeze period on GitHub is available here.
A release management room on the Matrix space is available where we are all reachable in one place.
Here’s my public personal calendar for this release cycle: https://kumo.lahfa.xyz/apps/calendar/p/fTRC5WaYGzd3yQaz – it will be improved with proper metadata as we move forward into this release cycle.
