In yesterday's IRC meeting, it was decided to go ahead with a 4.10
release as soon as possible to try to stick to the 6 months release
cycle that users are expecting and mostly to release the great features
that are currently sitting in CVS as soon as possible (curved labels,
mapfile includes, etc.).
It was also agreed that this should be the last 4.x release. The next
release should be 5.0, likely with a feature freeze in early January
2007. We should start planning for 5.0 in the next few weeks, hopefully
before the conference. Will you take the lead on that SteveL?
I volounteered to be the 4.10 release manager and prepared a 4.10
release plan at:
Unfortunately we are too late to have a release before the September
conference. The key dates for 4.10 would be:
* Feature freeze - Monday August 14, 2006
* 4.10.0-beta1 - August 17th
* 4.10.0-beta2 - August 28th
* 4.10.0-beta3 - September 6th
* 4.10.0-rc1 - September 22nd
* 4.10.0 (final) - September 29th
IMPORTANT: Note the planned feature freeze is this coming Monday August
14th. That essentially means that no new features can be implemented for
4.10 unless you are almost done and can get them in before Monday.
I would like to invite the MTSC members to review the relase plan at the
URL above and to vote on its adoption.
I start with a +1
