Subject Re: Time to push on for 4.2.0
Date Thu, 12 Apr 2018 17:15:15 GMT
I think it would take about 2 weeks for the most essential items.

But sadly my Windows build is crashing on startup and my FreeBSD build is
crashing during the build in main/offapi due to some kind of memory bug in
idlc (either due to changes in FreeBSD or corruption of my system files),
so sadly I first need a few days to investigate and possibly reinstall my
setups.

I'll keep you updated.
