A roadmap is the projected/estimated release schedule and planned features for each release. Adélie has roadmaps for each component of the distribution:

1.5

Overall, 1.5 is planned to be an incremental release. X, KDE, and easy-kernel will likely be version bumped. Further details TBD.


2.0

Adélie Linux 2.0 is meant to be the first real release that is ready for the general public. Horizon is planned to be rock solid and fully tested on all architectures and in many corner cases. LibreSSL might need to be investigated for additional security, pending how OpenSSL fares and how LibreSSL matures. Possible Wayland support. Other features TBD.
