Hi all,

Robot Framework 4.1.2 contains a considerable enhancement to memory
usage along with some bug fixes. For details see the release notes:
https://github.com/robotframework/robotframework/blob/master/doc/releasenotes/rf-4.1.2.rst

RF 4.1.2 is the last planned release in the whole RF 4.x series and
also the last planned release to support Python 2. Unfortunately this
also means the end of our Jython and IronPython support, at least
until they get Python 3 compatible versions released.

After RF 4.1.2 it's time for us to fully concentrate on RF 5.0. Being
a major release there are a lot of cool enhancements planned!

Cheers,
.peke

PS: I sent this email both to robotframework-users and
robotframework-announce, but I believe the latter list does not have
much use anymore. Lot of our communication and discussion has in
general moved from email to other mediums like Slack, Twitter and
Forum. I personally don't want to abandon email altogether, but
believe we should have only one list. If you got this email via
robotframework-announce and want to keep getting notifications about
new releases in the future, please join robotframework-users or some
other communication channel. If you are only interested in releases,
you probably can register for such notifications on GitHub as well.

Hello,

Robot Framework 4.1.2 had an unfortunate regression and we need to
create one more RF 4.1.x release. To give you more time to test RF
4.1.2 and report possible problems, RF 4.1.3 is planned for December
15.

If you haven't yet tested RF 4.1.2 in your environment, it would be
great if you did that ASAP and reported possible issues.. This is
especially important if you use Python 2, Jython or IronPython because
the forthcoming RF 5.0 release won't support them and RF 4.1.3 is thus
the last possibility to get problems fixed.

Cheers,
