3.4 M7 Milestone

  • this is a short milestone
  • M7 is May 2
  • translations need to be done sooner rather than later
  • keep an eye open for translation-related bugs
  • we don't translate things which are only written to the log
  • detection of Sun VM when running on Linux is a hot topic

Install Area

  • there is a lot of code which makes assumptions about paths
  • this will break things when we use shared bundle pools and the dropins directories
  • we should think about creating a new property called install area which refers to the location of the exe
  • the Mac is different so we would have to explain that it means the location of the application bundle
  • Tom to work with Andrew on this
  • need to nicely handle both the exe and running from the JAR cases
