Next Release?
« on: January 19, 2005, 10:50:06 pm »

It's been quite awhile since the last release.  Anyone know the status on when the next official release (v0.4 I assume) will be?

Taken from the FAQ:

Quote

Q: When is the next version of UQM going to be out?

A: The best answer is "when its ready".  You can also check out the current open bugs in the Bugzilla database.  You can also view the change log since the last major release.  The larger that list gets and the smaller the bug list gets, the closer to the next release.  Mostly importantly, please consider that all of the members of this project are doing this in their spare time and have Real Life commitments.



I don't say this to sound like a parrot, but its true. However we do know that after 0.4 will be 1.0.

There are certainly rumours of another release. However, it's been
over a year, so don't hold your breath.

Ah, so where's the changelog/buglist that the FAQ mentions?

The forum FAQ links to both the bug database and the changelog.

I recently got a message regarding the "bug" I posted being closed in bugzilla, so I know that someone's doing some work.   Smiley

A know it is not very sure proof, but in UQM Bugzilla "towards 0.4" fixed buglist is almost as long as version 0.3's. To me this tells that 0.4 might be on its way to ethusiastic players this spring. Right? Smiley I hope I'm right.

Even though the hard working UQM staff well... works hard with UQM, it would be nice if we would get more often these main releases.

0.3 is functional enough that additional releases don't matter much for me. That last set of remixes on the other hand...

I am not capable of speaking for coredev, but I do know that one of the larger roadblocks in the way of the 0.4 release is making the Windows Installer for UQM "not suck".

The crux of the problem, as I understand it, is that those with the required expertise to fix it do not have enough free time to do so, and those with enough free time do not have the required expertise.

If you have some skills in packaging software with NSIS (or any of its analogues, they are by no means married to it), have a look at the current state of affairs re: installation, and if you can, offer up a patch or five to fix the extant problems with it.  That's not to say that once the installer's fixed, they'll cut another release immediately, but I do know that it was expressly mentioned as one of the larger issues they face today.

As for MacOS X, I took some time to make cutting a release a matter of "pushing a button", so to speak.  Whenever they're ready to go, I'm ready to go.  If we can get all the supported platforms in the same state of grace, then many of the objections to "releasing often" go up in smoke.

What problems are they having with NSIS? I have a very limited amount of experience with it... if it's nothing major I might be able to have a whack at it.

Once the intro & ending are included in an official release (http://uqm.stack.nl/cgi-bin/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=46), UQM will be in a state that I'd enjoy giving it out to random people that I'll never see again.

I'm sure the next release will be able to display the intro/ending slides, as said functionality is present in the CVS (unless you are reffering to the DUK movies, that is).
