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.

Please read the Cosmic release schedule for more details about release-related dates.
