BIRT 2.5 Development
No change of status.
The June 2009 release of BIRT will be BIRT 2.5. Detailed planning has not be finalized since we are focusing on the BIRT 2.3 SR1 release for the next few months. However, some provisional planning has been completed via Bugzilla. To review, refer to Bugzilla using Target = 2.5 and Keyword "Plan"
BIRT 2.2.3 Discussion
At the last PMC meeting, we discussed a possible BIRT 2.2.3 maintenance release (see BIRT PMC Minutes - Monday, July 21, 2008#BIRT 2.2.3 Discussion)
We are waiting for some input on demand for this potential release. To be discussed at the next PMC meeting.
