Subject [RELEASE]: propose AOO 4.1.0 RC
Date Wed, 02 Apr 2014 13:16:40 GMT
Hi,

FOLLOW UP discussion please on the dev list!!!

Last week I proposed a final schedule for our upcoming AOO 4.1 release.
We are a little bit behind because the fact that we had to fix some
further critical issues. Nevertheless I would like to propose a first RC
based on revision 1583666 from the AOO410 branch. We spend a lot of time
in preparing the RC in time and the upload is ongoing. The MacOS and
Windows versions are already available and the Linux upload is still
ongoing. But keep in mind the binaries are for convenience and the
release relevant bits are the source release.

The RC builds can be found as always under
https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/OOOUSERS/Development+Snapshot+Builds

An overview of the fixes issues, enhancements and tasks going into this
release can be found under
http://people.apache.org/~jsc/milestones/4.1.0-rc/AOO4.1.0_RC_fixes.html.
I invite all volunteers to help with the verification of the fixed
issues. Especially the issues related to translation updates/fixes
should be verified by native speakers.

A related RAT scan can be found under
http://people.apache.org/~jsc/milestones/4.1.0-rc/AOO4.1.0_RAT_Scan.html

I have also prepared patches (msp) for Windows and for the languages we
have released with AOO 4.0.1. The patches are intended for private use
only and of course for testing but not for the release. It's the first
time that we prepared a complete set of patches and we have to test the
functionality a little bit more. The related full install sets are
prepared for patches in the future and can release patches in the future
as well if they work as expected. By the way I have upgraded AOO 4.0.1
(en-US) on my Windows laptop with the msp to AOO 4.1 ;-)

I plan to start a vote for this RC later today and let it run until
Sunday night, means enough time to test and evaluate the bits careful.
Linux binaries will be available tomorrow latest.

We have not fixed and integrated all requested showstoppers because they
were not all showstoppers from my perspective and we should take into
account that we have limited resources in the project able to fix
issues. We focused on issues that are obviously showstoppers and on
those who are relevant for most of our users.
