BIRT 2.1.2 Planning
Development Plan for BIRT 2.1.2 will be published on the Eclipse BIRT pages this week.
The release is proceeding on schedule. General information:
BIRT 2.1.2 is the second maintenance release in the BIRT 2.1 release series. This is a maintenance release to address critical bugs identified by the community. BIRT 2.1.1 is part of the Callisto coordinated maintenance release plan (see http://wiki.eclipse.org/index.php/Callisto_Coordinated_Maintenance).
Target date for the coordinated release is Feb 2007. From a BIRT project perspective, we aim to complete development by end of December. This will allow the development team to focus on BIRT 2.2 development.
For a list of bugs assigned to the release, refer to Bugzilla: https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/buglist.cgi?classification=BIRT&target_milestone=2.1.2
BIRT 2.2 Planning
No change in status this week:
The next major release of BIRT is BIRT 2.2, scheduled for June 2007 as part of the Europa Simultaneous Release (http://wiki.eclipse.org/index.php/Europa_Simultaneous_Release). The Europa cross-project team have updated their Milestone schedule with more details. This includes the BIRT milestones.
The draft BIRT 2.2 Development Plan has been published for review: http://www.eclipse.org/birt/phoenix/project/project_plan_R2_2_0.php
As previously indicated, not all projects in BIRT 2.2 are committed/staffed yet. We are in the process of research to determine project scope and feasibility for the release.

Jason is in the process of implementing the improved BIRT download pages at www.eclipse.org/birt discussed last week. We reviewed a draft and provided Jason with feedback. The new pages will be published this week.
