OpenStack is committed to an open design and development process. The community operates around a six-month, time-based release cycle with frequent development milestones. During each release cycle, the community gathers for the Forum to gather requirements from users, then developers meet at the Project Teams Gathering (PTG) to begin development work and cross-project collaboration. The following is an example of the OpenStack release cycle:
The OpenStack Roadmap is a community effort to help people evaluating OpenStack, users, and community members understand the features coming in the next release.
Because our design and development is done in the open, we have public documentation available regarding the development status of the current release and decisions made at each Forum. You have the opportunity to review this information in technical detail at the following links:
