I'd like to remind everyone that the 2.3 development cycle ended at 
12:00 UTC. We are now in feature freeze on the road to the 2.4 release 
on 2014-06-20 
(almost 28 days away; see also roadmap 

Now *we*, *the community*, need to prepare QGIS for release. No new 
features will be added anymore. *Users*, if not already begun, should 
now start extensive testing of master and report bugs on the hub 
<http://hub.qgis.org>. *Developers* should move their focus from 
creating new features to fixing bugs. *Translators* can can continue 
their work (Werner updated the translations in master. Thanks! Note that 
this might be an incremental process as - although there is feature 
freeze - bug fixes could still change or add translation strings).

The nightly builds of QGIS testing available for Windows 
<http://www.qgis.org/en/site/forusers/alldownloads.html#windows>, Linux 
(Debian <http://www.qgis.org/en/site/forusers/alldownloads.html#id3> and 
and Mac OS <http://www.qgis.org/en/site/forusers/alldownloads.html#id13> 
are now effectively snapshots of what's going to be released.  Except of 
course for the bugs that are going to be fixed until release day.  For 
Windows there will also continue to be weekly snapshots of the 
standalone installer that can serve as Release Candidate 

Lets keep up working together to make 2.4 another great release.
