Spotlight: Cosmic Cuttlefish (18.10) Feature Freeze Reminder
We are nearing release for Cosmic (18.10) on October 18th. In preparation for the release, we recently entered Feature Freeze on August 23rd. Now is the time that we focus on bug fixes for our packages because most of the significant features targetting Cosmic are ‘frozen’. Thank you for helping us build a better Ubuntu! We look forward to another great release.
