Gentoo 2007.1 release canceled.
Posted on January 12, 2008 by Christina Gianelloni

Curious why only one release happened in 2007, since previous years had multiple releases? Work began on the release as planned, but vast numbers of security vulnerabilities between September 2007 and December 2007 and reduced manpower left the Release Engineering team constantly overworked, having to rebuild stages and add items to the initial snapshot.

The releng team decided just before Christmas to cancel the release and roll all the effort into Gentoo 2008.0 since no possibility existed of getting a well-tested 2007.1 release out before 2008.
