Subject Re: [VOTE] Apache POI 3.14-final release (RC1)
Date Sat, 05 Mar 2016 20:43:45 GMT

I've now tested my projects with the release candidate - they were
already running against beta1. I found a couple of issues, though I
don't think either of them should block the release:

(1) Javen's commit r1721857 broke a hack we had in place to allow us to
create our own default font. We should add a proper piece of API to
support this: https://bz.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=59127

(2) I notice that the full ooxml-schemas (and ooxml-security) released
by me during beta1 have the wrong xmlbeans dependency on Maven. I've
raised a bug to track: https://bz.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=59128

As I said, I don't think either of the above is a blocker (the second
one isn't usually a problem for reasons detailed on the bug), so +1 from
me to release.
