View Full Version : Work on the next release started: Lemonade is brewing

10-15-2009, 10:30 AM
Citrus-PRD 3.5.0-GA is out of the door, and as our new product gets used in more and more real-world scenarios, new issues and bugs start flowing in.

Therefore, our next release will continue to concentrate on bug-fixes and ironing out the rough edges instead of shaking the boat with new large scale features. Sorry, crosstab-crows, you’ll have to wait a bit longer. The issues addressed so far already sparked some API-changes so that the implementation of the fix can be as efficient as possible. That makes it impossible to slap a “patch” release label on the code, therefore we will number the codeline 3.6 instead of 3.5.1. As usual, you can follow our progress in JIRA (http://jira.pentaho.com/secure/IssueNavigator.jspa?reset=true&mode=hide&sorter/order=DESC&sorter/field=priority&resolution=-1&pid=10051&fixfor=10811). The release should be ready to go at the end of November.

The project name for this release will be Lemonade, as it is a lot of Citrus with a few bits of Sugar.

The major feature work will concentrate on implementing

formula-parameters to post-process incoming inputs (PRD-2207 (http://jira.pentaho.com/browse/PRD-2207))
hidden parameters, so that you have control, which parameters end up in the UI (PRD-2208 (http://jira.pentaho.com/browse/PRD-2208))
MDX roles(PRD-2071 (http://jira.pentaho.com/browse/PRD-2071))
A set of new “MDX (Custom)” datasources to allow the same degree of flexibility we offer for the JDBC datasources. (PRD-2212 (http://jira.pentaho.com/browse/PRD-2212))
and of course, many, many bug-fixes. (The more you report, the more will be fixed.)
