The following projects are under feature-freeze:
Pull requests are being reviewed for Muffin and Cinnamon at the moment with the aim to feature freeze them this week.
Feature-frozen projects are labelled “2.0.0″. They continue to receive bug fixes on the 2.0.x series (for instance, cinnamon-settings-daemon and cinnamon-control-center are already at 2.0.1).
A couple of things are planned before Cinnamon 2.0 is considered “stable” both in terms of bug fixes, testing and localization so please don’t jump on 2.0.0 on your prod. system.
After all planned items are done and the team is happy with the quality of the DE, announcements will be made for the official release of Cinnamon 2.0.
The new DE will be then featured in the end of November within Linux Mint 16 Petra, and later backported to Linux Mint 13 Maya LTS and LMDE.
