Subject 0.20 release update - alpha is available, proposed schedule change
Date Fri, 26 Oct 2012 00:53:00 GMT
Hi, folks.  0.20 alpha is here:

   http://people.apache.org/~jross/qpid-0.20-alpha/

My testing on Fedora 16 x86_64 showed two test suites failing, the cpp 
test suite under cmake (I think this one is expected) and the cpp test 
suite under autotools.  Notes on what passed and what didn't are here:

   http://people.apache.org/~jross/qpid-0.20-alpha-testing.txt

Please give the alpha a try in your environment.  Consider exercising a 
part of the code that others may not.  Most important, report your 
findings, positive or negative.  I really appreciate it.

To quickly recap our standard policy: between today's alpha and beta in 
the coming weeks, new features or refactorings can be included only if 
they are first discussed on this list and determined to represent a 
minimal threat to the release's quality.  Bug fixes, in contrast, are 
unencumbered.

Finally, many of our contributors are working both on 0.20 and on proton 
0.2, and it turns out there is a schedule conflict.  Proton 0.2 is being 
prepared in time for the ApacheCon in early November.  That's about the 
same time that we would ordinarily be finishing the 0.20 beta.

I propose we extend the 0.20 beta date by two weeks to November 14th to 
give these contributors time to prepare Proton 0.2 and complete what they 
set out to do for 0.20.  Under this scheme, all the remaining 0.20 dates 
would move out a corresponding two weeks, but the 0.22 schedule would be 
unchanged.  Thanks for your consideration; I of course invite any and all 
comments or objections.

Thanks,
Justin
