First we talked about July '09 release to come close to an 8 months release cycle. But KDE 4.3 is scheduled for release on June 30th and

both wouldn't make it into a July openSUSE 11.2. Therfor we're now
It's like always with release dates: getting in 'sync' with upstream projects is close to impossible, except if they would all adjust.
So we postpone 11.2 for 2 month in order to get KDE 4.3 in... sounds actually quiet fair.
And just to let you know: by the typical 6 month cycle, just in September will most likely be also Gnome 2.28 ;) So we just miss the addition of hte greatest / best of gnome...
I agree, I think its odd to make a lengthy 10 month schedule and then not add on 2-4 weeks to grab the final version of GNOME. Within 2 months Ubuntu, Fedora and Mandriva will have new releases with a 6-months-newer GNOME.
However, we have these types of things as an on going problem. Perhaps we should consider things in the context of the longer term ie 11.2 as it relates to 11.3 and beyond. For instance, moving to hard 9 month schedule would at least allow us to ensure that every other release coincided nicely with either GNOME or KDE.
