Subject [VOTE] Release Commons Validator 1.4 beta 1 based on RC2
Date Fri, 08 Jul 2011 16:30:49 GMT
Hi All

Following the advice from the previous failed vote, I've rolled another RC 
for Commons Validator 1.4 beta 1. As per advice, this one was generated 
using Maven[1] rather than Ant. Just for a reminder, the idea of this 
release is to get some wider testing of the codebase, owing to the 4.5 
year gap since 1.3.1, before we hopefully release 1.4 in a few weeks time.

(We believe the code is stable and release worthy, but we're being a little 
cautious with a beta first simply because of the gap)

The svn tag this was build from is:

The release candidate files are available from:

Specifically the release notes:
Source and Binary zips+tarballs:
And Maven artifacts:

I've tested with JDK 1.4, 1.5 and 1.6. The only difference to last time is 
the software used to build the release with.

I haven't generated a new version of the site as the release guide would 
suggest, because this is intended to be a short lived beta release. I would 
propose to simply update the download page to incude the beta release too, and 
then do a full site generation (as per the release guide) when we're ready for 
the final 1.4 release

Voting will be open for just over 4 days (or until a blocker is found...), 
closing 10am GMT on Wednesday 13th July. Please vote:

  [ ] +1 Release this as Validator 1.4 beta 1
  [ ]  0 I don't object to this release, but I haven't checked it fully
  [ ] -1 There's a problem with the release, and that is ....
