The WTP 1.5.5 plan has met PMC approval
and is ready for general review and consumption.
WTP 1.5.5 is a service release for critical defects, regressions, and adopter
issues only. There should be no translation or UI changes, nor should it
affect any API reported through the adopter scanning tools.
The proposal is that to keep focus on
WTP 2.0 shutdown, we don't actually start development until the end of
June and don't declare an M build until July 13th. Then, we take
the biweekly approach we did in 1.5.4, with a few RC shutdown weeks leading
to an August 31 GA. RDB will work throughout May and June since they
don't have any 2.0 work and are preparing migration efforts to DTP.
