Has 19.07.4 been delayed?

Just wondering since the release announcement page says XX July 2020 and most of the major changes on said page have been merged in.

However, the 19.07 tree (https://git.openwrt.org/?p=openwrt/openwrt.git;a=shortlog;h=refs/heads/openwrt-19.07) has been quiet for a few days, just wanted to know if we can still expect a release later this month.

Wondering the same since 6 of july

While that might have been used as placeholder, it's not delayed as 19.07.4 hasn't been scheduled yet.

Seems a little odd that the release notes page would go up so early if the release hasn't been scheduled yet.

Is there somewhere we can check when it does get scheduled for release?

The release notes for the next release typically get started about 10s after current one has been uploaded. Usually with merely the version number changed, hoping that subsequent changes get updated as they happen - because writing release notes is hard, often harder than doing the release itself (especially for the demographic that likes development, but not necessarily writing prose), anything that eases that burden and distributes that over time is helpful.

Thank you for the explanation.

I hope for a release soon, it looks like all the fixes mentioned on the release notes page have been merged into openwrt-19.07 and all but one of the release goals mentioned here: https://openwrt.org/docs/guide-developer/releases/goals/19.07.4 have been fixed as well.

Some work had resumed on the 19.07 tree shortly after I had posted this thread so that is also a good sign.

Heads up
