Dropping fallback mode in 3.8


last weekend, the release team met and discussed (among other things)
the DropOrFixFallbackMode [1] feature. We've come to the conclusion
that we can't maintain fallback mode in reasonable quality, and are
better off dropping it. We're now working on organizing this so that
it does not create more unnecessary fallout.

You can see our current plans in the 'Action Items' section of the
feature page. It is not very detailed yet, but close enough to get a
good idea of what we will have to do for 3.8. I think I'll try to make
the moduleset changes for 3.7.2 (Nov 19) - other changes will happen
over time as patches become available. It would be a good goal to have
the major UI changes ([2][3]) in place for 3.7.3 (Dec 17). Please
watch the feature page for more details, as we work them out, and
please chime in and help us make this worthwhile.

Matthias, for the release team
