Subject: gstreamer 0.10 release date?
Date: Thursday 22nd September 2005 10:23:10 UTC (over 12 years ago)
Hey folks, I think we should set a date for a GStreamer 0.10 release. Otherwise we will lose focus and delay deployment of the code that we're actually hacking on, and deal with the shame of bugs in code we're not hacking on (0.8). Oh, the shame! However, most people will agree that we can't release 0.10.0 right now, which implies there are a few things that need to be done. I'll list a few of them here in no specified order: * Complete docs * An API review * A document describing changed API * More apps ported: gnome-multimedia?, totem working really well  This would not be an exercise in "this subsystem sucks", but more looking to see if we're returning the right refs, if we follow glib patterns, etc.  Existing apps ported: rhythmbox, jamboree, totem, flumotion... anything else? Aside from these release-related goals, some people might still have subsystem work they're interested in doing. I suggest we not do any more subsystem rewrites. We should focus on getting our code deployed. With these constraints, watch as I pull numbers out of hat. I suggest we bump up the plugins version numbers to match core for the unstable-API period so that it's easy to know if people have the right versions of the modules. After the API freeze the versions can be decoupled. Monday 03 Oct: 0.9.3 release Monday 17 Oct: 0.9.4 release - API frozen for four weeks - Any API changes should be filed in bugzilla and reviewed Monday 31 Oct: Spooky 0.9.5 release - API same as the last release - Should do an API review at this point Monday 14 Nov: 0.9.6 release - For this release, the API changes built up in bugzilla are applied - Also at this point the API is frozen for 0.10.0, barring emergencies - Should do a string review at this point Monday 21 Nov: String freeze in CVS - Translators: is this enough time? Monday 28 Nov: 0.10.0 prerelease Monday 05 Dec: 0.10.0 release - See you at the pub :-) Thoughts? -- Andy Wingo http://wingolog.org/ ------------------------------------------------------- SF.Net email is sponsored by: Tame your development challenges with Apache's Geronimo App Server.
