Hi all,

this mail is to communicate the today decision to split the 1.8 roadmap. 
Make GTK3 support really stable will require some time still, so we 
decided to release 1.8 soon with GTK2, and postpone some remaining 
things to the next release (1.10). The main goal is to bring to users 
the new features of MATE 1.8 with GTK2, without the wait of unneeded 
time (like fixed documentation, keyring removal, window snapping, new 
applets, ...).

Main things moved to 1.10 roadmap are GTK3, Wayland, GStreamer 1.0. 
Bluez5 support and upower deprecations will be fixed in 1.8.

Updated roadmap is available at http://wiki.mate-desktop.org/roadmap.
