View a more detailed timeline and breakdown of Rice 2.2 features at Rice 2.2 Project Plan with Milestones and information on 2.3 Planning at Rice 2.3 Project Plan. Note that due to the large scope of the items in 2.3 as well as the desire to get changes out to the community on a regular basis, the Roadmap items are now being delivered over 3 releases: Rice 2.3, 2.4, and 2.5. Please email with any questions.

Maintenance patch releases and Milestone code releases are made available with greater frequency.
