The main tool shed was updated on schedule on Tuesday, July 30.
As Nate stated in his reply to you regarding your question about the target
date for the next Galaxy release, the next-stable branch was created on
that date. The release process is such that when the next-stable branch
is created, the main Galaxy tool shed is immediately updated with that branch.
Ah - so the main Tool Shed is updated at that point - I see now :)
The next-stable branch remians open for approximately 2 weeks while
bugs are discovered and corrected using the branch. When all
discovered bugs are corrected, the branch is closed and the resulting
stable branch is pushed to the distribution as the release.
This process has not changed for some time now - ever since the
next-stable branch was introduced into our release process earlier

Thank you for the clarification, is this on the wiki somewhere I've
not read yet?
