BIRT 2.2.2 Development
BIRT 2.2.2 RC1 was made available for download on Friday, Feb 1, 2008. At this point we are not anticipating any other code changes between the current build and the final release on February 29, 2008. We encourage you to test this RC and let us know (via Bugzilla) if there are any issues.
BIRT 2.2.2 is the second maintenance release in the BIRT 2.2 release series. The 2.2.2 release is focused on addressing critical bugs identified by the community. BIRT 2.2.2 is part of the Europa Coordinated Maintenance Release.
The Development Plan for BIRT 2.2.2 is available on the Eclipse BIRT Project Development Plan pages.

No issues to report. BIRT 2.3 M5 continues to be targeted for Feb 18 (with Feb 26 Public Access). As stated last week, the M5 release is the first of the BIRT 2.3 Milestones that will have new features visible for testing -- see Bugzilla for the detailed list. A New & Notable will be posted for this release when the release is available.
BIRT 2.3 is the next major release of BIRT and part of the Ganymede Simultaneous Release. BIRT 2.3 is scheduled to be release in June 2008.

Bi-Directional Support (BiDi)
A team at IBM have been working on BiDi support within BIRT and are interested in working with the project team to make a contribution back into the BIRT code base. We discussed this at a high level and Mike proposed that we have some members of the BiDi team join the PMC call next week to discuss details. This is noted as an agenda item for next week.
