I was wondering when to expect 7.0 release ? Did I miss the schedule. Any
showstoppers ? when to expect RC1 ?
Have a great weekend.
Ken may respond in a more detailed form, but the current stage is that we are
waiting for the feature set to finally settle and some known outstanding
issues to resolve themselves, at which point we'll cut a first beta in the
next 2-4 weeks. As a precursor to that, monthly snapshots will likely get
built and released in the next couple of days. Hopefully testing and feedback
from that will allow us to nail down a more specific schedule for the release
At this point, the imperative for developers is to wrap up any remaining
outstanding features and work on testing and bug fixing. Likewise users :-).
We often find that even early adoption sites only really start testing during
the RC cycle, and that's far too late to make larger changes that may be
required to address some sorts of stability issues. Getting people doing
testing the whole way through the cycle makes a big difference in the
effectiveness of the test cycle.
There are some really great features in 7.0, and it's wonderful to be at the
polishing and testing stage finally :-).
