BIRT 2.3 SR1 Development (Fall Maintenance Release)
The BIRT 2.3 SR1 Development Plan has been posted for review on the BIRT project pages at: http://wiki.eclipse.org/BIRT_Project_Plan_for_Release_2.3.1.
Target date for the release is Wednesday September 24, 2008.
BIRT 2.3 SR1 is the first maintenance release for BIRT 2.3. It is part of the coordinated Service Release for the Ganymede project. More information on the coordinated release can be found in the Service Release section of the Ganymede pages.
The designation for this release is BIRT 2.3 SR1, with the version number as BIRT 2.3.1.
The Development Plan for BIRT 2.3 SR1 is available on the Eclipse BIRT Project Development Plan pages. The Milestone schedule for the release is available in the Service Release timeline section of the Ganymede project page (BIRT is a "+2" project in this schedule).
For a list of bugs assigned to this release, refer to Bugzilla: BIRT 2.3 SR1 Bugs assigned in Bugzilla
BIRT 2.5 Development
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
We discussed a possible BIRT 2.2.x maintenance release in response to requests for some fixes in the PDF area. At this point, these fixes are available as patches attached to the Bugzilla entries. This requires that someone who needs these fixes needs to take the patches, incorporate them, and build the product. The question would be whether we provide a build that incorporates these fixes. If we did this, it would be BIRT 2.2.3.
No conclusions that this meeting since it requires some more research. To be discussed at the next meeting.
