Subject RE: Proposed date for 0.10.0 release?

Btw Curt,

I've got my server product on Mac OS X Server with a log4cxx snapshot
(thanks again for the XCode project generation guide). I'm at the point now
where I could use a number of automated clients to produce some profiling
data for log4cxx performance testing if you needed it.

Just give me a few days' notice since I've got a full plate right now.

I'm working on breaking the dependency on LGPL'd CPPUNIT (bug
LOGCXX-225) at the moment.  That is the last significant blocker that  
I know of that would prevent preparing a release candidate.   The plan  
after that would be:

Remove @author tags (now considered bad form and many are carried over from
log4j and list authors that have never touched the C++ code) Remove @since
tags (a mismatch of log4j and log4cxx versions) Align Ant build options with
the ./configure options Improve generated MSVC and other IDE projects
Prepare release candidate for testing.

Once a release candidate is out, moving to a release would require having
enough list participants test and report on the build to motivate other
Logging Services PMC members to review and vote on the release.  At least 3
1+ votes from PMC members are required for a release.  Since I'm the only
currently active PMC member contributing to log4cxx, I'm going to have to
plead with PMC members from log4net and Chainsaw developers to vet the

I've said it so many times that it is bound to eventually be right, but I
hope to have a release candidate out for review in the next two weeks.
