[JAI] Release plans for jai-core and jai-imageio-core
Dear interest list subscribers,
Hello. We have assembled a rough near term release plan for JAI and
JAI-Image I/O. We would like to submit this draft plan proposal to you
for discussion and to elicit any suggestions that you might have.
What we are thinking is that the next release of each product will support
the 64-bit platforms for which a JVM is currently available (Linux-AMD64,
Solaris-AMD64, and Solaris-SPARC) as well as fixes for the highest profile
bugs on file. The list of bugs to be fixed will be based on the votes
submitted to both the java.sun.com bug database and the java.net issues
database plus any bugs subjectively deemed to be of importance. The list
of targeted bugs will be available on the jai and jai-imageio web pages soon
and an announcement to that effect will be made at the appropriate time. We
would be interested in hearing about any issues that are affecting your work
so that they may be assigned a suitable priority.
The product versions in question will be JAI 1.1.3 and JAI-Image I/O 1.1.
We are leaning towards having alpha, beta, and fcs release milestones for
each product. These milestones would be tagged in the java.net CVS
repositories and the respective binary installers made available in the
usual manner on java.sun.com. The rationale for electing to start with an
alpha milestone is due to the introduction of 64-bit native support which
involves newly created native binaries as well as new installer bundles.
Your participation in the discussions about this release plan is encouraged
as is the submission of code by those project members who have submitted
the appropriate contribution agreement (JCA). Via collaboration with you
we hope to be able to provide the best releases possible. Also, if you have
other issues which you deem to be of higher priority please feel free to
