after another -- this time short -- delay, I want to bring everyone up
to date with regard to the upcoming 2.1.0 release.
I've worked hard in the last weeks on TSC and fixed lots of bugs and
even implemented some new features. I've resolved all unassigned tickets
marked for version 2.1.0 on the bugtracker as well as those assigned
specifically to me. What remains are two tickets, one assigned to
datahead and one assigned to refi. These are the last two tickets
holding back a release. You can see the list of open tickets for 2.1.0
One of these tickets (#604) is more an administrative task that I don't
expect to generate new problems. The other one (#80) is the
long-standing Rokko activation rectangle problem. I really hope datahead
finds time to fix it.
With such a small amount of tickets left, it's time to talk about
releasing. If nothing substantially changes, I'm going to release
2.1.0-beta1 next weekend. With that release, we'll enter the beta phase,
which means that no new features may be added into 2.1.0. Any new
features will have to wait until the subsequent release. The beta phase
is for finding bugs and eliminating them. Any bugs found during the beta
phase should be fixed before the release candidate, which I expect to
come out around the year switch, because the Christmas free time is most
likely going to allow finishing touches. Early next year, I hope that we
can release 2.1.0.
