Subject RE: Preview: Docs upgrade from Forrest 0.6-->0.7
Date Mon, 01 Aug 2005 18:01:23 GMT
Hey all: 

I am going to make the Forrest upgrade checkin at 1pm Pacific time.  Without upgrading to
Forrest 0.7, this checkin will break the distribution and doc related build targets.

After you sync to my changes, you should install Forrest 0.7 as described below.
I will around today and tomorrow to fix any problems -- after that I will be in Vietnam for
three weeks -- where I won't be very helpful.

Subject: Preview: Docs upgrade from Forrest 0.6-->0.7

Hi all: 

I am going to upgrade the doc build to use Forrest 0.7 in the next couple of days.

Thought I would run the change by you all, and make sure there are no objections.

Two issues are motivating this upgrade: 
(1) Link checking works much better in Forrest 0.7
(2) Property overrides (in are fixed in 0.7

But, on the whole, there are no huge structural changes associated with the upgrade.

Note: this change only applies to those folks who already have Forrest 0.6 installed and are
running the doc-related build targets, i.e., "build.dist", "", etc.

The upgrade will consist of the following changes:

(1) Download Forrest 0.7 from: and unzip the distribution
on your machine.

(2) Set the FORREST_HOME variable on your machine:

FORREST_HOME=C:\apache\apache-forrest-0.7 (or wherever you unzipped the Forrest distribution)

(3) Add the following to your PATH:


That's it.

I will be making some associated content changes to the XML files, but you don't have to wait
for those checkins to make the upgrade from 0.6 to 0.7. 

I will send out another email when I am ready to checkin.
