Subject Re: Time to push on for 4.2.0
Date Wed, 11 Apr 2018 01:26:05 GMT

Before we start on 4.2.0 I would like to finish off porting one final
module, main/jvmfwk, to gbuild. Then I'll take a break from the build
changes, and would like to contribute these improvements:

* Overhaul our Java support. Support newer Java versions. Enhance Java
detection on *nix, adding OpenJDK and matching on prefixes (like openjdk*
for FreeBSD, eg. /usr/local/openjdk7, /usr/local/openjdk8) instead of fixed
strings such as "jdk". Look in /usr/lib too on 64 bit Linux instead of the
RedHat-only /usr/lib64. Accelerate Java autodetection by resolving symbolic
links and caching results to avoid the slowness of multiple unnecessary
checks of the same Java directory through different symlinks.
* GStreamer 0.1 and 1.0.
* Audit the new SDBC-JDBC bridge and ensure it's 100% compatible with the
old one.
* Library naming and symbol versioning audit of all libraries against 4.1.x.
* Run all tests against 4.1.x and trunk, and fix the regressions.
* Full PostgreSQL support (views, indexes, users, groups, GUI dialogs) if
there is time.
* Get the Mediawiki plugin working again, if there is time.
