Discussion of new versions

Postby SrNupsen » Thu Jul 29, 2004 7:50 pm

Hi all,

a) Parahead is as of now a moderator of this forum, allowing him to start threads since he seems to have some good ideas for future versions :wink:

b) Technical discussion thread split. Please keep on topic guys!

c) Small reminder: Only moderators are allowed to start threads in this forum, but everybody can reply to threads here.

Also a small question to cerberos: Are the ideas we see here due for the 1.30 series, and if not ( :wink: ) what's the time frame for releasing 1.30?

The major focus of the series 1.30.x is optimising the database and removing current space constraints. That is what has been discussed specially lately. This is a real major task.
Of course along the way there might some hook requests, small visual improvements, some other smaller code improvement ideas (such as the locking with nsettings etc).

Thank you for your trust! :-)

I know we have discussed this before cerberos, but what do you think about releasing 1.30.4 which would basically be the 1.30.3 with the small fixes attached to it as described in that thread? My personal view on this is that it then should be stable enough to have people start testing this series? I have used such a patched version of 1.30.3 on my site for month now without problems. Maybe even be so bold as to say that 1.30.4 should be an official release (1.31) and we could continue the development as you describe in 1.32.x? Just a suggestion and I can take no for an aswer... ;-)

I agree that 1.3.4 is stable enoguh to be put together, but needs more people trying it out before an official release.
So I will prepare a package with it and encourage more testers in.

Yes, of course it would need more testing before becoming an official release, what I ment was the that the goal with the 1.30.4 release would be to halt any further improvements or additions to the 1.30.x and make the functionality currently in that series become an official version (1.31) with 1.30.4 as the first step...

The *development* could then continue in 1.32.x...

Is there a master list of all the current (known) bugs in the beta version? I would like to get to testing it out soon, if possible. :cry:

I have had a package ready for release from a technical point of view now for a while (about one and a half month) as mentioned in this thread and I have not really worked with it any more from that point in time. Basically from my point of view it is up to SrNupsen and dragn if they would like to release it as is or take the oppertunity to update the docs, license text, installation messages and so on.

I don't know of any bugs in the package though, but I am sure some will be found when the beta is released. A known problem tough is that some addons will have a hard time with the new folder structure (before they are updated to deal with it), but there is a fallback approach of not using subfolders as well. Since the persons involved in the new 1.31.x package more or less have been focused to bring it to the same level of development as where 1.30.x was interupted, I have not put in any work on the database abstraction layer or the requests for a new admin layout, which both makes a big impact on Coranto.

If anybody has some spare time and wants to offer to write a new readme etc., that'd be very helpful...

Anyone interested can send me a PM to get more detailed info about what needs to be done.
