On a side note: We are aware the images at the top of the release process page do not properly depict the current state correctly. We'll update it as soon as possible. For the mean time, take a look at the table at the bottom of the page. ;)

At the very bottom of that page there is a statement that say
If you want to contribute a new feature it will go into the 3.2.x development branch ( master).
Actually the master branch is for 3.3.x and the 3.2.x's one it is features frozen, also.

The announcement says:
End of Maintenance (EOM): December 2016
That's 3 months from now. 3.2 is still in it's first RC since June and still has several issues. This could lead to the weird situation where the latest stable version isn't maintained anymore... I think that's not the goal.

The original plan states quite simply summarized that a stable version reaches EOM 6 months after the release of it's successor. Is that still the target for 3.1?
My extensions:
Simple CMS, Feed post bot, Avatar Resize, Modbreak, Magic OGP, Live topic update, Modern Quote, Quoted Where (GDPR) and Autoresponder.
Newest: FAQ manager for 3.2

Like my work? Buy me a coffee to keep it coming. :ugeek:

Those dates were likely specified based on the assumption that 3.1 would be released on schedule. I doubt they're going stop supporting/maintaining 3.1 before 3.2 is released.
Don't forget to smile today. :)
