Re: Work remaining toward a 1.4 release

Hi all,

Today I wondered what's there between now and the point where we can release 1.4.0. So, I started to look at any open 1.4 bugs. It seems there are none at the moment (neither are there any open tickets on 1.3).
Hmm, I haven't managed to build a working 1.4 so my testing options are limited, but we found 3 (or possibly 4) bugs on the 1.4 demo system within about 10 minutes of running our usual workflows on it. Is the demo running the latest 1.4? All of the bugs we found got reported directly to Chris.

So, I would like to request everybody who is currently running 1.4 and knows about any unsolved problems to report those on SourceForge (or in response to this message so I can). That way, we have a canonical place to record whether we're ready to release 1.4 or not.

Further more, I propose we create a stabilization branch next week, so that any features which are committed to trunk will appear in 1.5 and stop to destabilize 1.4. I'm particularly thinking of Istvan's "invoice creation date"-forward port which (accidentally) caused destabilization. If we branch sooner rather than later, we'll be able to control the stability of 1.4 better -admittedly at the cost of backport-efforts.

After branching 1.4, we could release 1.4-alpha2 to stimulate testing by a wider audience.
That sounds sensible

Irrespective of whether we branch or not, it seems more and more people are starting to use Apache 2.4. To help people get a working configuration, we want to deliver a separate 2.4 template - this applies to 1.4 and 1.3 equally, so doesn't need to delay the release of a 1.4 alpha. As soon as we have an apache2.4 config template, we can release that with 1.3, 1.4 and put it in trunk, if we do so after branching.


Any other items/steps?
