I have a few questions about the relay chain runtime release schedule. I didn’t find the useful information available on the internet. So I just drop the questions here hoping someone can answer them.
I got the question because there’s a minor breaking change introduced in Polkadot 1.4. Most of the people will not be affected, but if someone is building a Polkadot light client (e.g. a light client based bridge), their client will stop working if they don’t have the corresponding patch applied to the code.
Here are the questions:
- When will Polkadot 1.4 released on Kusama and Polkadot?
- What’s the general rule to decide if a version will be released or skipped?
- Where can I find the release schedule discussion?
- If there’s breaking change to the upstream, is it possible to coordinate with the release team to postpone the upgrade, or figure out the way to deal with the incompatibility together?
