Drivers Update

Friday March 29th, 2002

The Status Reports was updated, and included some information on what are up to, and what's coming up:

" approved checkins for over 240 bugs this last week. We've taken a few more big-ticket items and have a couple to go. drivers will be ramping down this next week and actively soliciting fixes that we need to branch and have a Release Candidate 1 sometime (hopefully) late next week. We need to get RC1 out there quickly and get feedback on all the changes we've taken since 0.9.9 and at the same time we need the release to stand up so that users will put enough hours on it to give meaningful feedback. Please help us to get the builds into good shape over this next week with particular attention to recent regressions and topcrash+ bugs."

You are replying to this message

"But it seems pretty clear that it won't really be a "Release Candidate" in the normal sense of the term, ie it won't be nearly good enough to be renamed as the unqualified 1.0."

Why do you say that it is clear that RC1 will not be nearly good enough to be renamed as the unqualified 1.0?

Which bugs do you believe MUST be fixed for an unqualified 1.0 but you do not expect to see fixed in RC1.

Remember RC1 has not been released yet and so there is still time to get more bugs fixed; maybe RC1 can be an unqualified 1.0.
