Update Center 2.3 Toolkit Release


Release Theme: Quality

Enhanced quality in the form of a significant reduction of outstanding bugsis the primary theme of this release.

Since there is relatively little development time available for this release, we expect to address only a modest number of features in this release.

As a goal, the team is keen to reduce the current outstanding bug count by half for this release. Out of roughly 160 defects, 60 are P1-P3. Addressing these issues and scrubbing the remaining defects while selecting certain P4 and P5 issues to either fix or mark as "won't ever fix" should enable us to meet this bug reduction goal.

Beyond the Binary Toolkit Release

Beyond delivery of this toolkit binary release, resourcing will also be applied to:

Upcoming Release Timing

2.2u1July 2009Supporting GlassFish v3 Preview and Web Stack 1.5
2.3Oct 2009Supporting GlassFish v3 product quality release in November
2.4Feb 2010Currently driven by preliminary plan for next named release of OpenSolaris and therefore next iteration of pkg(5). Also provides sufficient buffer after the October 2.3 release.

2.3 Feature Review and Prioritization

Planned 2.3 Enhancements

Notes on the planned features list:

  • The planned feature list will undergo modest changes as P3s are added in the next week leading up to a solid list by i-team on June 18.
  • P1 mean must have, release stopper feature.
  • P2 means we really want to have the feature, but we won't hold up the release if issues get in the way.
  • P3 means nice to have, stretch goal for development. However, P3s need to be identified by June 18 such that QA can sufficiently plan for the release.

None of these issue affect critical features and most of them have workarounds.
