Post subject:  OLV Release Delays

I've been meaning to get OLV 0.0.3 out the door for a while now, however, it's not happened yet. There are a number of reasons why not, so I thought I'd share them here.

  • New changes use new plugins, all of which are almost perfect, none of which are good enough. I can fix each of them myself, and release, however doing that work, which IS wasted, is not a priority.
  • In sussing out those plugin issues, I burned quite a bit of time on them.
  • I moved a few more issues into the release and performed the bulk of that work, which took a while.
  • The two new libs that the new code uses aren't 100% and aren't released yet, either.
  • I need to do some further design work on the final aspect of the changes, which is core to the release.
  • I spent the last 5 days making myself independent of currently available loading solutions, none of which were up to my (admittedly very high) standards.
  • Although I did most of the translation base stuff, I didn't complete it due to "future" changes in various parts. I still need to do that work.
  • I currently have 4 branches based off of the end of my private changes, most of which are data tweaks for custom logging. I want to break free of that shackle and get down to just one as rebasing four mixed branches when something on the public base changes is a slight pain.

Summary, I'm working on other related things at full steam in the mean time, and if/when I am done with those things, I'll do the required hacks on the plugins, and push those changes.

If any of the plugins get released/fixed in the mean time, I'll push the associated changes ASAP and retain the remaining stuff locally.

IE, I'm releasing what I can cleanly release. To push changes prematurely would mean pointless repository churn tweaking things that I already knew were wrong...

Fred.

I just got some updates on one of the plugins, hopefully more soon. 1/2 of the issues needing resolution are closed now. Just one to go, then I can push more updates.

Just released and signed and uploaded a new version of another one required for the release. Hopefully that gets synced to central soon :-)

The one that I already released, I just released again, but to central, and myself. I'm now an official user on the sonatype oss nexus instance with ability to deploy! Cool :-)

Should be available tomorrow morning, with luck.

Fred.

The forum doesn't notify me of any new posts in the OLV section like it does for all the rest (clicking "view active topics"), so I haven't been following along. It is good to see the updates!

Thank you for notifying me. Fixed for a number of forums...

Looks like I'll soon have access to officially fix one of the plugins that needs work.

As soon as I accept the position, this is true. I'm hoping Jeff will give me a hand with that :-)
