Here is some preliminary information
about WTP 1.0.1. We'll be planning details within the PMC and on
All hot bugs that have been targetted
for WTP 1.0.1 should use the new target milestone = 1.0.1 M101. Thx for
adding this David. Here are the groundrules for WTP 1.0.1:
1. The target release date is mid February
which gives us some time after Eclipse 3.1.2 is released on January 31.
We'll adjust the precise date based on the volume and rate of incoming
adopter bug fix requests.
2. This is a maintenance release to
help adopters ship products. Only release bug fixes that have been explicitly
requested by an adopter. These must appear on the Hot List for 1.0.1 which
I'll post soon.
3. There will be NO UI changes and NO
functional enhancements. This release is strictly for fixing serious bugs
that adopters need. Fixes should be made with minimal disruption to adopters
and other parts of WTP.
4. The work on 1.0.1 will take place
in parallel with the 1.5 work. We'll set up an approriate CVS branch structure
5. We need to build 1.0.1 in parallel
with 1.5. Adopters will need timely response to urgent fix requests so
we need to produce both the fixes and builds on an acceptable schedule.
We'll set up an appropriate build structure and schedule soon.
