Microsoft has announced a short summer break for upcoming edge updates. Only from July 13th will there be scheduled updates in the regular rhythm, since the Google Chrome team’s release cycle is based.
Specifically, this means that apart from the updates in the Canary channel, no further updates for Microsoft Edge will be published for the time being. At Canary, the daily updates remain. You can expect that a new Edge version will not be released until the week after next, in which the regular Patch Day is also planned. The development team now informed the tech community about the short break:
Upcoming release schedule for Dev, Beta and Stable
everyone, To keep up with the chrome project’s release schedule, we have no Dev, Beta, or stable releases scheduled for the next two weeks. However, Canary will continue to receive updates every day of the week. From the week of July 13th, we will resume our typical release schedule, with updates weekly for Dev and Beta every 6 weeks.
Even if we take a break from shipping, we would still be happy to hear your opinion! You can talk to us on Twitter at @MSEdgeDev or in this forum. If you would like to report a bug or provide product feedback, you can use our in-browser feedback tool. (Navigate to the “…”> “Help and Feedback”> “Send Feedback” menu, or hold down Shift + Alt + I)”.
The decision therefore only has real effects for the dev channel, because two updates are suspended for it. The “vacation” is likely to affect the traditional July 4th break-in many US companies.
