If you have not already, you should be turning in final documentation for any 1.25 enhancements as you read this. Release notes will be finalized on Friday; feature owners and SIG leads should scan them and send any corrections to the Release Team. 1.25 release is planned for August 26.

The first release candidate for Kubernetes 1.25 is available, so please test it with your infrastructure and report any issues you find.

Patch releases for 1.22, 1.23, and 1.24 are due out this Wednesday. These will include backports of many fixes.
