Build, Release, Testing
CASA 4.2.1 Release on OSX
Pre-release testing results by Juergen.
Plotms and other applications seems to work well, but viewer is somewhat unstable.
Punch list of automated tests to be resolved. Scott identifying which tests can be run headless. Will ask for assistance from team once they are identified.
Darrell & Susan on Viewer. OSX 10.7 machine to be given to Susan for direct debugging.
Darrell & Susan would like to merge the trunk fixes to the branch. Some crashes and issues may already be addressed in the trunk. Some new issues identified may also be cross-platform.
Will need to merge trunk changes from trunk to both 4.2.1 and 4.2.2.
Given codebase change, OSX 4.2.1 should likely have a additional decimal to differentiate from the RHEL 4.2.1 release.
Additional testing by Juergen (Dev. environment & 10.8) to focus debugging effort.
CASA 4.2.1. Plan
CASA 4.2.1 Release on EL
Released internally end of last week. Will be available for the summer school.
On hold in preference on 4.2.1 and 4.3 test package. (1 week delay)
CASA 4.3 Test Packages
Test package this week.
April 17th - Lindsey - Pipelines
Modern compiler and C++ 11
CASA Document Repository.
Feature freeze delayed from 4/18 (AKA Friday) to 4/25.
CASA 4.2.2. Plan
Trying to rationalize the releases to match ALMA October cycles and EVLA reconfigurations.
Weekly staff reports - (halt practice?)
Jeff interested in identifying objections to removing this feature.
Susan does use it in plotms.
No objections from pipeline or users who have been consulted.
Conclusion: Remove it. Implement the change for 4.3 or later (no sooner). Shinosuke to evaluate the plan for removing it.
