Subject [Myfaces Wiki] Update of "CoreRelease128" by LeonardoUribe
Date Tue, 17 Nov 2009 02:12:36 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Myfaces Wiki" for change notification.

The "CoreRelease128" page has been changed by LeonardoUribe.


New page:
== Notes on the MyFaces Core 1.2.8 Release ==

 Release manager: Leonardo Uribe

== Timeline ==

 * Proposed release date: 2009-11-20

=== Issues ===

=== Testing ===

Here's how you can help us test the distribution.

Download a nightly build of the distribution assemblies:

Configure a <repository> for Maven 2:
           <name>Apache Snapshot Repository</name>
And declare a dependency on the 1.2.8 snapshots:

'''Note:''' Maven 2.0.4 will '''not''' download a new version if one is already present in
your local repository.  You will need to '''delete''' $M2_REPO/org/apache/myfaces/core to
force Maven to download the new version.  (Usually, $M2_REPO is <your home directory>/.m2/repository

Test your application, then, let us know the results (good or bad!) on ''dev -at-''.

I was running the needed tasks to get the 1.2.8 release of Apache
MyFaces core out.

The artifacts passed all TCK test.

Please note that this vote concerns all of the following parts:
 1. Maven artifact group "org.apache.myfaces.shared" v3.0.7  [1]
 2. Maven artifact group "org.apache.myfaces.core" v1.2.8  [1]

The artifacts are deployed to my private Apache account ([1] and [3] for binary and source

The release notes could be found at [4].

Also the clirr test does not show binary incompatibilities with myfaces-api.

Please take a look at the "1.2.8" artifacts and vote!

Please note: This vote is "majority approval" with a minimum of three
+1 votes (see [3]).

[ ] +1 for community members who have reviewed the bits
[ ] +0
[ ] -1 for fatal flaws that should cause these bits not to be released,
 and why..............
