RELEASE 3 pre-alpha-4

Release team working process

Tasks for testing

Urgent Goals

Before 2009-03-13 we need to achieve the following:

  • product
    • repository branching
    • Gaining functionality needed for the third release as stated by the schedule
    • tuning
    • bugs to fix
    • things to remove
    • things to disable
    • files to download
    • final delivery
  • documentation
    • download page
    • release documentation
    • user documentation
    • installation instructions


Download Page

Release Document

  • Links
  • Internal support for plugin configuration
  • Resource Manipulation
  • Community Web Site
  • Sophie Server
    • Resource management
    • Search
  • Book desktop

User Documentation

  • This should be the documentation for all features available in the released downloadable. This includes new features, old features and updates done to them. This way we could iteratively form the final user docs.
  • Currently at ITERATION_06/Release/UserDocumentation

Installation Instructions

  • installation instructions (MAC/Windows/Linux). Mac java tweaking instructions.



Always write where is the result of the task you completed. This would be the changeset with thorough commit comment for coding and a link to the wiki page for a document.

How to use the branch

Update your working copy of the repository

  • If you have the trunk project imported in Eclipse, change your workspace to a new one (for example "Release")
  • Import as a "Maven project" from branches/release03-pre-alpha-4
  • All your changes from now on will affect only the release branch
  • We should prepare a good sample book.
