Subject 10.1.2 release schedule
Date Fri, 21 Oct 2005 00:38:56 GMT
Well we are down to the last day for checkins for 10.1.2.  The only
outstanding issues for 10.1.2 are two documentation issues, DERBY-620
and DERBY-566. Since the documentation is not  bundled with the release,
there is no reason for these to hold up the release.

Here is what I propose (assuming we hit no snags along the way).

   - Complete checkins for 10.1.2                  Friday, October 21,
12 noon PST                      
   - Post Release Candidate                           Monday October
   - Test and Vote on Release Candidate        Monday October 24- Friday
October 28         
   - Post and anounce release                          Monday October

I would  really appreciate it if folks could hold off on any checkins to
the 10.1 branch between noon PST Friday and the time the release
candidate is posted.  Let me know if that's a problem.  We have  a short
window for testing so please consider planning some time next week to
test  the release.   I am especially hoping someone (Lance?) will have a
chance to run the CTS suite.

Here are the release notes:

Some of the 10.1.2  highlights are
    - Globalization of  the 10.1 error messages.
    - Eclipse 3.1 support
    - Ability to run on  on MAC  with no special configuration    
    - Support for direct execution of derbynet.jar using the -jar option
of the VM.
    - Fixes to allow databases to be loaded from jars in the classpath
    - Fixes to improve J2ME  support.
    - Fixes to improve security manager support.
    - Fixes to eliminate memory leaks, hangs, NullPointerExceptions,
wrong results, protocol errors  and other critical issues.

need updating).
