Subject Geronimo Tooling 1.1 Release Plans
Date Fri, 07 Jul 2006 13:24:21 GMT
So to close out the 1.1 eclipse tooling release here is what I'm  
planning to do...

RC3 is currently available to pull down and test.  I still need to do  
some sniff testing on the update-site distribution and making sure  
existing 1.0 plugin users can update directly to 1.1. (Since plugins  
where completely renamed in 1.1.1 I'm hoping eclipse knows how to  
handle this correctly and disables old plugins not in the latest  
feature.) After I create the release notes I plan to call a vote  
within the next 24-48 hours.

Looking ahead to 1.1.1 I'm hoping there will not be any incompatible  
changes in 1.1.1 and so the 1.1 jars I'm repackaging in the eclipse- 
plugin will work for deployments to 1.1.1.  Also the eclipse PDE  
builder has a feature that supports generating qualified builds that  
TLPs are now exploiting so projects can provide updates at a much  
more frequent and granular level.  I plan to implement a similar  
feature in the eclipse plugin m2 build that will allow similar  
capability.  This should help us get to a model where we can have  
frequent maintenance releases with minimum work for the developer to  
put out these releases.  (i.e simply commit fixes, build, and the  
generated plugins versions will have generated qualifiers appended to  
them that can simply pushed to the update site).
