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.

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"
