This is a tracker for features planned for the 18.2 release.
Note: features should be merged prior to the branchpoint
According to Mario Kleiner, it would be good to get these merged for 18.2:
The branch has been created today.
Therefore, I'm closing this and moving bug 106865 to the new release tracker bug 107457.
New features will need to wait for 18.3, possibly added to bug 107455.
