        Subject:        Proposal : Time to release Axis C++ 1.6beta


(This is a repeat send, because I can't find any evidence of the original

Hi, Guys,

I wish to propose we produce an Axis C++ 1.6 beta, and if no significant
problems are found we should release the 1.6 final two weeks later.

Here is my reasoning behind this proposal:

In the past few weeks, a lot of the issues we've been seeing on the 
list have already been fixed in the latest nightly builds.  It would
therefore be a good time to consider releasing, particularly as it has 
over 10 months since any form of release.

254 Jira issues have been fixed since the 1.5 final release.

But this isn't just a fix release, there has also been an increase in
capability added to the Axis C++ engine and the WSDL2Ws tooling:
Improvements within the engine include:
   memory management
   transport layer
   cookie support
   addition of Configuration API

Improved WSDL support for:
   xsd built-in simple types (all types now supported)

The nightly builds when tested today on Windows, Linux and AIX have only 1
client testcase failing (see AXISCPP-942) from 288 attempted.
It looks like AXISCPP-942 should be fixed very soon, but I feel we can
still try producing a beta, and ensure this fix gets into the final
