  • State: Completely Finished

The common releasing process, for the users to estimate your expectations and for the developers to remind the tasks:
1. The preparing and building week:

  • Announcing the releasing process start:
  • Merging the Work branch changes or copying the whole Work branch tree to the LTS branch-tree.
  • Making some LTS specific changes about the version rise:
    • updating configure.ac for version of the release-update and core library;
    • updating data/*.spec and data/{debian,debian_mod}/changelog for the new version number and appending the files' changelog for new release-update entry;
    • updating the splash image src/moduls/ui/QTStarter/images/splash.png by editing the source file data/icons_src/splash.xcf.
  • Forming-appending the LTS ChangeLog by the changes from the Work ChangeLog, grouping the changes by the location and sorting them by the fixing status and the level, with combination new features under one item and without removing any different changes.
  • Copying the significant changes from the formed LTS ChangeLog to the related page of the release-update, taking the changes in the level more or even than "!!".
  • Translating the release-update pages, updating the ToDo and RoadMap.
  • Generating the actual offline documentation using the service procedure "EXT: Off-line documentation".
  • Committing the LTS tree changes to the repository and building that.
  • Announcing the release-update.

2. The testing and post building week:

  • Hot testing the release build.
  • Finishing and fixing the ChangeLog translating and the documentation.
  • Generating the actual offline documentation using the service procedure "EXT: Off-line documentation".
  • Committing the release fixes to the repository and building that for the second-final build.

3. Finish and the post release tasks:

This update is done after 1.5 years of releasing the 0.9 LTS, then it worth as 10 updates by there have fixed about 250 bugs and append many improvements, which you can read wholly in the update ChangeLog.

The key features of the update are:

  • significant expanding and stabilisation of the Web-interface during practical exploiting in a large distributed solution based on the module UI.WebVision; also expanding and stabilisation the hot development during the multiple execution of the developing project;
  • testing, fixing, and extending the redundancy in the messages part, also through the practical exploiting in a large distributed and also redundant solution, in the common-system code and the module DAQ.ModBus;
  • complete restructuring, improvement and addition of the OpenSCADA libraries in the SQLite files;
  • general documentation enhancements, appending for the all libraries documentation and revision for most module documentation.

      • The main window vertical expanding threshold set to 10% of the window decreasing size and to 50% for shrinking, to prevent flicking on FireFox for notes about block the external windows. The built-in scaling mode set to use-enable in relation from window.devicePixelRatio equal to 1, on the WebBrowser level.
