It is six months since the 3.2 release and seems a reasonable time to
release 3.3 which fixes many issues [1]. I will, once again, be the
release manager and intend to perform the release process on Saturday
the 28th February 2015.

The targeted release architectures currently include RISC OS although
I have serious reservations about releasing on this platform. This is
principally because the current maintainer has not had sufficient time
to address the numerous bugs currently assigned [2]. 

This also raises the question of who (if anyone) is assessing the
impact of core changes on the RISC OS frontend. If the situation does
not improve I shall be forced to remove RISC OS as a release
architecture for subsequent releases.

To be clear, this does not affect it being built as part of the
development process, just having releases provided by NetSurf.

The Win32, Atari and Haiku frontends will not be release
frontends unless a maintainer becomes apparent pretty quickly.
