Yep. Don't forget to post to derby-user too.

that would be nice. CHANGES is a little stale at the moment.

Open bugs with Fix In 10.2 is a good place to start:


106 issues scheduled to be fixed before 10.2. We should probably
tighten that up. Or get to some serious bug fixing real soon now.

Was this the page you were looking for?


Although, that page is also a little stale now. Online backup is
complete, for instance.

Thanks for looking into putting a snapshot together. It will be good
to get these new features wider testing.

On a different note, did you get the snapshot target working? I'm
looking to simplify the process, after your last note I realized that
it shouldn't be necessary to run 15 commands to produce the snapshot.
I'm running some testing and hope to have that down to one command
('ant snapshot' :-) ) if things work out.
