Viewer debugging and testing in developer environments has concluded. Currently testing a pre-release package on 10.7 and 10.8.
Five outstanding regression test failures to diagnose and resolve. See CAS-6357.
RHEL release of CASA 4.2.1 is ready for use and is in the process of being made available on the NRAO network.
Library linking issues reported on 3/31/14 have been resolved.
User testing of the package has revealed instabilities in the viewer. Further development effort will be required to debug.
Another round of pre-release testing will be required after the viewer development work. This has been reflected on the schedule below.
Work is in progress to release both RHEL and OSX CASA 4.2.1 packages. Work that has been completed or started is reflected in the Gantt chart under the '% Complete" column.
The fixes from the 4.2.0 branch as well as the fix for CAS-6037 have been merged into this branch.
Work is currently focused on the iterative build and package acceptance test cycle for both RHEL and OSX.
OSX debugging is blocked by a library linking issue between CASA, CUPS and another 3rd party library. This is currently causing CASA to crash on OSX 10.7.
A "Risk" column has been added to the Gantt chart to provide an indication of the schedule risk associated with each task.
It is especially hard to quantify the effort/time required for OSX debugging ('Iterative Building & Package Acceptance Test Cycle for OSX"). If this iterative cycle can be completed by 4/11/14, the package should be available for users at the Imaging Synthesis Workshop. Should this work extend beyond 4/11/14, providing this package in time is increasingly difficult due to the limited contingency time available in the 4.2.1 OSX release schedule.
To support the Synthesis Imaging Workshop on 13-20 May, 2014.
