Subject Re: [VOTE] Apache POI 3.17 release (RC2)
Date Wed, 30 Aug 2017 22:25:45 GMT
I'd like to see something like the array formula support run through the
regression suite and common-crawl before we put it out there, as I suspect
there are a lot of variations to the syntax, some of which may cause things
like NPEs or other unexpected behavior.  Rather than push a big change and
see what happens, I'd like to see if we can pick up some additional unit
tests from existing files first.

I'd also prefer it not cause a delay in 3.17 to do those things and handle
any additional cases that pop up out of that testing.

That said, I'm excited to see that additional support, but think it would
be best to do that in 4.0 or a theoretical 3.18, where there is time for
test builds, more testing, and comments before baking it in.
