  • PDE Build:
    • Working on p2-enabled product builds
    • Build will produce a p2 repository in addition to built product
  • Installer
    • Going to enable proxies in the installer
    • Won't focus on further installer polish for 3.4
    • Can focus more on making the installer first class in 3.4.1
  • Associate and discovery sites
    • Have a simple implementation released but it likely won't scale
    • Working on splitting known repos from "discovered" repos
    • Let user add discovered repos manually
  • Plan to release trust authentication work and SSL support this work
  • Update compatibility:
    • platform.xml synchronization released
    • Working on support for site policies
    • May be some corner cases to test and resolve
    • We now successfully parse and load all legacy update sites on EPIC
    • Have not yet optimized case of legacy update site with pack200 enabled
  • Solver:
    • Tracking down bug in resolving configurations with optional bundles
  • Patches
    • Can currently support one patch per feature
    • May need a special pre-processing step to merge multiple patches on a feature
  • Nested features
    • Currently we list all features in available software list, even when they don't appear in site.xml
    • We'll look into putting features not listed in site.xml into another category
    • We can then make this category hidden in the UI to provide an experience consistent with UM
