BIRT 2.3 Development

Development work for RC0 (aka M7) is progressing, with RC0 scheduled for Public Access on May 13.

Jason posted the New and Notable for M6.

General Information

BIRT 2.3 is the next major release of BIRT and part of the Eclipse Ganymede Simultaneous Release. BIRT 2.3 is scheduled to be release in June 2008.

The Development Plan for BIRT 2.3 is available on the Eclipse BIRT Project Development Plan pages. The Milestone schedule for the release is available in the timeline section of the Ganymede project page (BIRT is a "+2" project in this schedule).

For a list of bugs assigned to the release, refer to Bugzilla: BIRT 2.3 Assigned Bugs in Bugzilla.

Bi-Directional Support (BiDi)

The IPZilla submission has been made for this contribution and it's working it's way through the process.

As stated previously, as long as this work does not change any existing APIs, this continues to be something that is being considered for BIRT 2.3. Depending on progress, a possible approach will be to have some of the work be contributed for BIRT 2.3, with additional changes in BIRT 2.3.x.

General Information

For general background on this contribution, refer to the discussion of IBM's potential contribution of BiDi support in BIRT at the Feb 11, 2008 PMC meeting.

The contribution to the project has been submitted as is being tracked via Bugzilla:
