CMS Release Team Meeting Oct 27, 2021
Duration: 60 Minutes
Rachel, Claudia, Harald, Benjamin, Phil, Stefan, Sigrid, Jenn, Tobias
1. Last Release Review:
Release 3.10 was without problems.
Last minute changes in J4 were a problem, because there was no testing.
Packages should only be released when they were tested before.
Release candidates should be the same as the final release. If RC changes → new RC
If there are changes after RC → the release leads will post information to glip team channel for extra testing.
The process has to be realistic.
Sigrid will talk to release leads.
2. What needs to be changed or added in the migration docs for the .htaccess stuff for 4.0.5
There will be one line in the docs. Jenn will post to glip channel.
Phil created an FAQ - https://docs.joomla.org/Htaccess_changes_after_joomla4.0.4
3. Splitting up/focusing on testing 3.10.x and 4.x
Both should be tested equally, but also depending on the number of changes. If there are only a few changes in 3, then more testing in 4.
We will keep communication in Glip channel - who is doing what - Joomla and PHP versions
4. Status 4.1
Benjamin introduced the new planned features for 4.1 to us:
Scheduler (GSoC) - in Alpha3 End of Nov. (feature freeze)
Accessibility Checker for authors
Statistic plugin - optimize
Tiny MCE - Code highlighting, Language code
