I’ve been taking a break from Doomsday for the past two weeks, partly because I didn’t take a real break during the summer this year and partly because I haven’t had very much spare time recently.

It has been nice to think about some other things for a while, for instance taking a closer look at the C++11 standard and playing around with the more advanced features. With Doomsday there is a lot of inertia that prevents doing this sort of experimentation, because we have to make sure everything still compiles on all of the supported platforms.

I’ve moved the 1.15 Candidate phase and stable release forward to give us time to finish all our work for 1.15.
