[mapguide-users] MapGuide Open Source 2.2 Release Candidate 4

The AJAX and Fusion viewers support multiple browsers (IE8, IE9, Firefox, Chrome, Safari). Any changes we make will also need to be tested and verified on all supported browsers.
Checking in a bunch of IE9 compatibility fixes which break currently supported browsers would be bad. I would prefer to move IE9 compatibility to a bug fix release (2.2.1). I expect multiple test builds will be required to get clean IE9 support.

I'm not setup to build - so I can't do any patching...I could certainly do some testing though, if someone could get me a test build.
In other news, I just installed IE9 and tested out on my server which is running MGOS v220.127.116.1154 (I think that's RC2)....worked perfectly fine for me. My site's AJAX though - could be that the guy that posted about this problem was either a) using Fusion (which I can't test right now, since I don't have any Fusion sites), or b) had a beta of IE9 which was, indeed, broken.....or maybe c) that the version after 18.104.22.16854 breaks
IE9 compatibility, I suppose. Though, that seems unlikely.
Anyway - I just wanted to give my 2cents on this...I just think that we should make sure that either MGOS 2.2 supports all major browsers out of the box, or else gets a patch asap - I'm not sure when IE9 will be pushed out through Windows Update and WSUS, but when it does, we need to be sure that MGOS is up to snuff for it.....like I said, from what I can tell at the moment, it seems to work fine (or worst case, worked fine very recently).

>> Bug fix release? What's that? We haven't had one of those since 2.0.2 (2.5 years ago). Most open source projects have bug fix releases every quarter. Releases and bug fixes are certainly one area where funding either by direct contract work or through Sponsorships/Donations would certainly help.
>> At the moment, we barely manage a single release every year. The 2.2.0 release has been especially troublesome. We've generated four release candidates since October.

>> Does this RC fix the IE9 problems? I recall reading something on the list that someone had posted about how Mapguide pretty much doesn't work with IE9....Since it's out now, MGOS 2.2 really needs to support it fully. Anyway, just wonrdering! I haven't had a chance to test it out myself quite yet...
