    Default 6.0.7 Status

    A few have been asking about status when the dates bump, can't promise to make a post/thread every time in the future, but the current rebuild was for:

    Bug 47686 - conversation navigational buttons missing in lite client
    Bug 46538 - HTML appears in edit filter screen

    Right now it's a matter of timing (also note historically we don't release on fri/sat/sun since less of us are around to assist). The thing to keep in mind every rebuild adds at roughly 2 days.


    While we'll still push for 7th which we had targeted either (before those above bugs cropped up) that logic automatically makes it the 9th. We'll know more and firm up our guess at the end of the day. Yes I realize 31st was the old target; we strongly feel our triage/QA teams are doing a good job setting the quality bar high, even if it slips the date on ZCS 6.0.7 / ZD 2.0B3.

    ~

    In the upcoming pm.zimbra.com re-design we'll try to include reasons as well as an rss feed etc. For now we'll try to note it in the small field next to patch/and include a reliability %, but the point it it's always supposed to be our 'best' guess; might add (and thanks to a few of you for noticing) we've been updating it the last few months early/often/pretty close to when the decisions are made.

    To answer another question: We do have both a branch freeze to control variability (where only a dedicated release engineering team can commit code) and an internal target that moves around based on your demands - ie: What customers are clamoring about x feature or bug controls how strict we are in triage decisions (cutting/adding).

    As the kids say on roadtrips:
    Are we there yet? How much further?

    As I have said before, I would prefer you released a quality bugfree release, than rush it out to a timetable. Having the development process transparent is too valuable to have it anyother way.

    Amen, Dave. I am anxious, too. I have a few users with HTC Droid Incredible phones who bug me about this every day - "Have you applied the patch to fix my send problem yet..."

    Close the doors and unplug the phones until the patch is up and working.

    I do agree that we always want releases as bug free as possible. Though I do have to say the 6.0.6.1 release seems to have been even a better decision considering how long before 6.0.7's release (past the initial target/freeze/commit dates). We've been very happy with it and the fact that it was released early.

    Hopefully a similar model can be used in the future if any major bugs come up so they can be fixed between releases.

    I appreciate thoroughness, but I've got a few people waiting on some serious bugs with the Outlook connector, and from what I can see the blocking issues for 6.0.7 all have to do with Zimbra Desktop. In the past I've been able to download beta versions of the connector from the support portal, but I've seen nothing since 6.0.6 was released. Is there any chance of getting an update ZCO early?

    Hi all - pm.zimbra.com has the right date now. Target is Monday 14th. Had a few last minute bugs (Twice!) this week so triggered a couple rebuilds. Focus is on quality so we want to make sure we get it right.
