1.3.2 release schedule
Here is an update on our 1.3.2 release schedule.
[pre]18-Feb : 1.3.2-beta3 build available
04-Mar : Code freeze for 1.3.2 fcs release
mid-Mar : 1.3.2 fcs release on web (including Web Start)[/pre]
Since beta3 is our last beta build, we will only be fixing regressions and serious bugs after tomorrow.
We intend 1.3.2 fcs to be a developers release, meaning that we will release downloadable zip bundles on java.net and make the signed jar files and JNLP files available for Java Web Start-based applications, but we will not be providing InstallShield binaries, rpm binaries, or packages on java.sun.com at this time. Applications that use Java 3D with JNLP or bundle Java 3D and the JRE with their application will see no functional difference between 1.3.2 and previous releases (e.g., 1.3.1). However, it will not be as convenient for end users to install Java 3D as if we had installation bundles.
