Xfce 4.14 Release Date Announced

Good news!

From Simon:

Hi everyone,

I recently signed up as Release Manager for Xfce 4.14 and am happy to
provide you with some concrete dates for the upcoming weeks and months,
including the announcement of the final date for the 4.14 release.

=== General Notes ===
First of all, we will stick to our official release mode (
https://www.xfce.org/about/releasemodel) also for this release, which means
we will tag each of the three (at least: two) pre-releases - in addition to
the 4.13.x devel release tag - in all git repositories that are part of the
core (example: xfce-4.14pre1). Hopefully this will make it clear which
versions belong to a specific pre-release of 4.14 and will help with
testing the platform as a whole.
This information is especially important to packagers as we have skipped
this step since Xfce 4.8.

=== The Schedule ===
After some internal discussions we have come to the following schedule
(more details here: https://wiki.xfce.org/releng/4.14/roadmap):
19th of May: 4.14-pre1
30th of June: 4.14-pre2
28th of July: 4.14-pre3 (optional; possibly also 4.14-final)
11th of August: 4.14-final

=== How can you help? ===
If you're a developer it's quite clear: clear your schedule, commit
yourself and your code! :)
In all seriousness: almost anyone can help! We'll try to provide a Docker
container of xfce-test (https://github.com/schuellerf/xfce-test) for each
of the pre-releases which can help with testing (and reporting bugs), doing
translations, screenshots, docs etc.
Moral support (on IRC or one of the mailing lists) also counts! ;)


Source and roadmap.

4.14 is around the corner.
