BIRT 2.3 Update
The release was made available to the community two weeks ago and there are no issues to report.
BIRT 2.3 is the new major release of BIRT and part of the Eclipse Ganymede Simultaneous Release.
For a full description of the new features, see the BIRT 2.3 New and Notable. There is also a recorded New Feature Webinar available from Eclipse Live that highlights all the new features.
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 addressed in the release, refer to Bugzilla: BIRT 2.3 Assigned Bugs in Bugzilla.
BIRT 2.3.1 Development (Fall Maintenance Release)
We did not manage to publish the draft 2.3.1 plan last week but plan to do so this week. Like previous x.y.1 releases, this will be a maintenance release to address any issues indentified with the initial release.
Target date for the release is Wednesday September 24, 2008.
For a list of bugs assigned to this release, refer to Bugzilla: [https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/buglist.cgi?classification=BIRT&product=BIRT&target_milestone=2.3.1
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 2.3.1 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"
