TWikiRelease04x02 branched, and Beta 1 released

2007-09-20 - 01:27:49 by SvenDowideit in Development
Release 4.2.0 Beta 1: zip | tgz Windows installer

We have begun the count down to a new TWiki Release. For people wanting to help test the releases, there are nightly builds uploaded to TWikiRelease04x02 nightly build area. As things stablize, I will then build a beta release, and upload it to TWiki.org.

Please, report any bugs you notice, even ones you can't quite reproduce to the TWiki bugs system and mark as Urgent. These bugs will then be worked on, or downgraded as appropriate to this release. We are also collecting bug reports that will be used to make up the followup 4.2.1 patch release.

For developers, please switch to the TWikiRelease04x02 release branch, do your editing, unit test runs and commits to there, and then merge to MAIN branch.

For those of you with MAIN checkouts you can use svn switch to convert from a MAIN checkout to a TWikiRelease04x02 one using the following command from inside your MAIN checkout

svn switch http://svn.twiki.org/svn/twiki/branches/TWikiRelease04x02
./pseudo-install.pl default
./pseudo-install.pl UnitTestContrib

This takes time to run, but does not use anywhere as much network traffic.

if, like me, you run a cp -r MAIN TWikiRelease04x02 and then the svn switch, you'll probably have trouble running the pseudo-install

svn status | grep ? | sed 's/?/rm -r/' | sh

will clean up your checkout, so you can start over (note, you will loose your cfg files)

Once you've got a checkout, please do a sanity check on it, by running the unit tests (modify the TWIKI_HOME line to suite your system - this one is my apple mini)

cd /test/unit
export TWIKI_HOME=/Users/sven/src/TWikiRelease04x02/
../bin/TestRunner.pl TWikiSuite.pm
