Hi folks, already confirmed, Deepin V20 is delayed by the outbreak of coronavirus Wuhan. Today February 12th I got up this news (I wake up relatively late, because my time zone is GMT-6), it has been published by Aida on the official forum of Deepin. Aida is who usually publishes news deepin.org.
A few days ago we mentioned it was possible that Deepin V20 is delayed, it is now confirmed.
The original publication is the next.

[Ad] Deepin V20 will be postponed until March 2020 - v20 delayed
Deepin Dear members of the community.
Hi everyone! It was expected that (Deepin) V20 would be launched later this month (February). Because of the epidemic situation, the progress of development has been affected to some extent, so the V20 will be postponed until March and has not determined the specific launch time. Thank you for your support Deepin, please excuse me, thank you.
Since February 3, it has completed the opening of Deepin remote offices. At present, it has not been confirmed that no one is infected. Rest assured, we will definitely offer all the v20 version as soon as possible!
In previous communications we said, "We plan to finish the development work Deepin V20 in late February and launch the beta for public testing in March 2020". This leaves us with the question whether it relates to public beta testing or final release.
We try to resolve this doubt and tell them the answer as soon as possible.
Mind, the future looks bright
Community spirit, although there is an atmosphere both pessimistic about the new version of Deepin caused by the long wait and successive delays, I am optimistic after testing a new commercial Deepin brother, UOS. I also followed news UOS in China, everything looks a lot looking to share in the Chinese institutional and business sector. If UOS obtained in the Chinese market stability, safe community version will also benefit, because they belong to the same family.
If you want to share a summary of the news of UOS in China, let me know in the comments.
UPDATE - 16 FEBRUARY 2020
Deepin contacted Wuhan Technology, asked if they expected to launch in March Deepin V20 beta or final version. The answer is that in March expect to launch the beta for public testing, and the next month (April) the final version.
