Subject Re: 10.2 release delay
Date Wed, 20 Sep 2006 13:49:16 GMT
Hi Robert,

I updated the wiki a few days ago because I noticed that the original 
dates were clearly stale--we had already slipped by a couple weeks. I 
pushed the projected dates out long enough to allow for a couple release 
candidates in case our first attempt flops. Discussion about release 
plans has largely happened on the developer list. I apologize for not 
alerting everyone when I updated the wiki page.

The schedule has slipped for the following reasons:

1) It was an aggressive schedule to begin with. After a year's worth of 
10.2 development, we had introduced some serious regressions which only 
surfaced during beta testing. In addition, some of the feature work 
needed more polishing.

2) It took a long time to resolve the licensing issue related to the use 
of beta software to build our JDBC4 support.

For the record, I'm cautiously hopeful that we will post a release 
candidate this week.
