  • 9.3.1 Release Update
  • 9.3.2 Code Freeze & Release Plan (Code freeze on April 15th)
    • What else might come in?
      Mitchel will tag priority issues with “Help Needed” we will focus on those and oldest reported bugs. We also need to move some issues from platform to AE repositories.
    • Improving testing?
      We need to improve testing, please test various scenarios on the RC before the official release. Peter: Peter mentioned people submitting PRs could add testing steps to the PR description, this could be added to the PR template.
  • 9.4.0 Release (Code freeze currently planned for May 17th for a release before Dnn Connect)
    • Early Testing appreciated (.NET 4.7.2 & Async)
      Testing RC on environments that may not have the latest patches. Use Async ActionResults in MVC Controllers.
    • Cloud Support Items
      Upcoming PR will contain testing steps.
    • Data Consent (GDPR) support
      Upcoming PR will contain testing steps.
  • Roadmap : How to present
    • Balancing “promises” vs “disclosure”
      It is hard to commit to both release dates and selected work items assigned to a release. We need to clearly declare what items are absolutely required for a release to happen and what is a best hope item (we get to it if time allows).
    • Options
      • Include items in the various releases as we have, and kick the ball when needed
      • Only add “committed” items. (But what is the definition of “Committed”)
      • Separate releases from “strategic goals” or “Targets”
      • Others?
  • Community Interactions & Behavior
    • THIS IS NOT because of any 1 incident that we are talking about this again
    • Still a major problem
    • We are a volunteer organization, and need to remember the goals
    • A change in direction != assignment of work. NO ONE in this community can assign work to another. If we need a structural shift, we need action to support it
    • Respect & Professionalism is key.
    • Changes Being Made by the EAG Group & Mitch as TAG Leader
    • Code of Conduct being assigned & distributed to all repositories to remind us of actions
    • Mitchel, as TAG leader, will take ownership of final decisions. Once discussions have occured on RFC’s etc, the commentary will be channeled into an action and closed.
  • IE11 stance on compatibility
    We need to clearly indicate we are dropping IE11 support in Dnn 10 and in the documentation about requirements.
    We will revisit the Edge subject on next meeting…
  • Language packs
    Sebastian asked about switching how language packs are handled, Mitchel is waiting for an answer, Daniel Valadas mentioned that most new features in 9.3.0 have not been translated.
