BIRT 2.5 Development

The draft 2.5 Development Plan has not yet been posted. Due to a combination of travel schedules and commitments on commercial releases, we have not made as much progress on this as we would have liked. We are continuing to work on this.

As always, if anyone in the community has input, please create a Bugzilla item.

General Information for BIRT 2.5

The June 2009 release of BIRT will be BIRT 2.5. Detailed planning has not be finalized although, some provisional planning has been completed via Bugzilla. To review, refer to Bugzilla using Target = 2.5 and Keyword "Plan"

BIRT 2.5 will be part of the Galileo Simultaneous Release.
