Upcoming Releases:

  Geronimo 1.2 -- geronimo/server/trunk/
    Release Manager: Dain Sundstrom and Alan Cabrera
    Estimated Date: Q4 2006


Certification - Historically certification has been the most time consuming 
portion of a release, and there is no reason to expect it to be any different 
for this release.  To make matters worse, the certification test suite has not 
been run in several months while major changes have been made to EJB, 
Transaction, Connector and Servlet Session.    

Features - The scope for the 1.2 release is currently being finalized.  We 
have collected a list of 14 features to be included in the release and are 
working on prioritizing the list.  The prioritized list will help guide us in 
determining when to release based on the number of completed high priority 

Dead 1.2 -  There are still 37 unmerged commits the dead 1.2 branch.  These 
commits must be merged before the 1.2 release.  The current status of the 
dead-1.2 changes can be found at

Specs - There are two proposals for versioning specification jars in Geronimo.  
The first uses a single version number for all specifications.  The makes 
releasing new versions of specifications easy for the Geronimo committers as 
only a single file must be updated.  Alternatively, each specification could 
have an independent version number.  With this approach several files may have 
to be updated to release a jar, but this approach reduces the number of jars 
that are released with no changes.  This issue is in active discussion and will 
hopefully be resolved quickly.
