Subject Re: Time for our first 4.2.0 beta?
Date Fri, 15 Feb 2019 09:55:32 GMT
Bug 125129 looks like a wild goose chase and requires considerable
understanding of the framework layer, but I'll try continue when I have

My own release checklist would include:
1. Library audit.
1.1 Did we lose or gain any public symbols in our libraries since the
4.1.0? Gbuild requires explicit export instead of exporting everything and
then possibly controlling visibility with a .map file, so it's very
1.2 Did ELF symbol versions on *nix platforms change? The older gbuild
modules probably did, as I didn't understand the meaning of .map files back
1.3 Are the same libraries with the same names available in both 4.1.0 and
2. Base:
2.1 Complete the Java SDBC driver framework, used by both the new SDBC-JDBC
bridge and the Postgres SDBC driver.
2.2 Audit the new SDBC-JDBC bridge in Java against the old C++ one, fix any
2.3 Complete the Postgres SDBC driver; still needs views, users, groups,
2.4 Complete the integration of the Postgres SDBC driver into the Base UI
forms (like MySQL already is).
3. Crashreporter
3.1 Get it working again.
3.2 Bug reported in UI form (instead of submitted to some now obsolete
server), which can be copied/pasted or attached to Bugzilla.
4. Testing
4.1 Run all available tests (unit tests, smoketest, module integration
tests, bvt, fvt, etc.) against 4.1.0 and 4.2.0, find and fix any
