SCS Release 5 around the corner

The active and involved members of our community are very much aware of it - however I was reminded today that we should make sure to push this news to be visible to everyone else :)

A lot of the preparations - aside from the work on the various projects themselves - are currently happening in the various HedgeDoc pads and are in the process of being transferred to the various release related documents.

The release date for SCS Release 5 has been set for September 20th, 2023. This is next week!

How to help with making this release even better?

One of the best ways to contribute and help ensure that Release 5 is the best version yet is to assist with testing. Another great way is to help with items such as the Release Notes. There is a r5 branch in the release-notes repository with a work-in-progress PR.
