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."

New milestones are characterised by feature additions, followed by bug fixing, branching and stabilisation. There SHOULD be almost nothing in the way of new features added between RC1 and the final 1.0, therefore it should be considered as a final stabilisation phase before the real 1.0 is released.

I would be pretty sure that the main reason for the release of an RC1 is to get a large number of people to use this build. Then the talkback reports can be used to squelch the topcrashes, before final release.
