Subject [Important] please test release candidate rc1
Date Tue, 14 Jun 2005 01:42:16 GMT
We need people to test the release candidate on your projects,
especially on different operating systems and Java versions.
Just send a short reply to this thread that it works for you.
See method below.

Download the release candidate and supporting files:

For Windows:
For UNIX: apache-forrest-0.7rc1.tar.gz
Get the *.asc and *.md5 that match your chosen download.

It was packed from SVN revision 190503
Java 1.4 or later is required.

If you want to verify the download, then follow:

Otherwise just get on with testing.

Testing concludes Sunday 2005-06-19 14:00 UTC
If there have been changes over the week, then another
release candidate will be Friday 2005-06-17 at 22:00 UTC
The release date is Sunday 2005-06-19 at 14:00 UTC

Anyone can test, please don't leave it up to just a few people.

So we have approximately 6 days.

Here are some hints:

* Ensure that the compressed archive will unpack properly.
* Verify the release, especially if you are a committer.
* Follow the README.txt and index.html
* Set environment variables.
* Don't worry too much about minor bugs. We are looking
for blockers, such as it will not run. Many known issues
are recorded at our Jira, perhaps you can add more.

* Make a fresh site ...
cd my-new-dir
forrest seed
forrest run ... use the local jetty server.
forrest ... build the whole site from the command-line.
forrest war ... use your own full Jetty or Tomcat.

* Try it on the Forrest core docs ...
cd site-author
forrest run

* Forrest was already pre-built. Try building it again.
cd main
build clean
build test

* Try it on your own project, especially if you have
a project sitemap and use some extra plugins.

* Please report any problems to the mailing lists and
we will collate them in the issue tracker. Then we will
decide which ones need fixing now.
