Release [2022.01] - dates and feature requests

Dear RIOTers,

The release dates for the upcoming release are fixed as follows:

17.12.2021 - soft feature freeze, for high impact features

14.01.2022 - hard feature freeze, for all features

31.01.2022 - Release date

Could you please post your suggestions for features which you would like to see merged during this release cycle.

Cheers & happy hacking!


Given that the Rust build system support is now better, I hope to merge in the Rust demos – so far, this has all been out of tree, but within this cycle an in-tree example should be possible.

(Provided the builders run on the current riotbuild containers, not sure what the state there is).


Oh, that’s great news!


Given the latest traction on ztimer if we are able to get ztimer64, we would like to push for migrating to ztimer from xtimer.

There is an open issue with non-trivial migration changes, things where the API is not a drop-in replacement for xtimer, i.e. things the coccinelle script can’t change automatically.
