Release Preparation

The forum for ZeosLib 7.2 Report problems. Ask for help, post proposals for the new version and Zeoslib 7.2 features here. This is a forum that will be edited once the 7.2.x version goes into RC/stable!!

My personal intention for 7.2 is to speed up the internals as optimal a possible for all IDE's. Hope you can help?! Have fun with testing 7.2

Release Preparation

Postby marsupilami » 21.01.2018, 10:34

Hello Guys,

I finally had the chance to take a look on the release tools. I couldn't get the documentation part working. But if that is left out it boils down to the scripts copying some files and zipping them up. So I uploaded what can curently be done to the files section:
https://sourceforge.net/projects/zeosli ... -7.2.2-rc/

Regarding documentation: From what I can see in the other RC version, the documentation that would be generated is outdated too. So here is what I suggest: We create a small and simple installation document that refers people to the forums if they have questions. Your opinions about that?

What I want to get done before I create a release that will be marked as stable:
-> add packages for Delphi 10.2

Opinions? Are there things that you want to get into that release very quickly?

If there are no big objections your side or things that keep me away from my computer, I want to finally release Zeos 7.2 in 2 weeks time.

Best regards,

Jan

Hi Jan,

Why did you add binaries for Lazarus to the package?

Hello Michal,

the scripts were not prepared to ignore that kind of artifacts yet. I added rules to exclude *.ppu and *.o files.

With best regards, Jan

I don't have pending significant changes to 7.2 too.
As for the docs: honestly I couldn't overcome the process. I even installed TeX editor/compiler but it still too damn messy so I just read comments in the code :).

Hello Fr0st,

Hmmm - I just installed MikTeX and TeXnicCenter. Then it worked out ok. But I am not sue there is something in the LaTeX document that can help you. But there is some documentation in Docbook syntax where I have problems to find a suitable environment for - other than a virtual machine with Linux ;)

Best regards,

Jan

Sorry guys, I understand everyone wants to see release at last but I had to make a couple of commits to 7.2 to simplify metadata-related things I currently digging into to implement GUID support. These commits are just cosmetic and shouldn't affect anything.

As long as things don't hav a (big) impact it is ok for me. Wanting to have a release shouldn't make us stop to make things better :)

Sooo - Egonhugeist made me aware of a change in the Postgresql driver that _needs_ to be documented for our users. So I added a new document to the Sourceforge Wiki: https://sourceforge.net/p/zeoslib/wiki/ ... 20release/

If you want something added there - go ahead and add it :D

An update about release preparation. I think Zeos 7.2 is almost ready to be released. Currently there are two reasons that keep me from doing a stable release:
  • There is no rough overview about new features. I digged through about 25 percent of the commit log but this is really cumbersome.
  • We added support for GUID-Fields in the postgresql driver. But currently it seems problematic to use GUIDs in query parameters. See https://sourceforge.net/p/zeoslib/tickets/224/ . I would like to either solve that before a final release or to know that it cannot be solved for technical reasons.

Opinions?

Hello,

I compiled a new release candidate and added some basic release notes. Any opinions?
Best regards,

Jan

Some updates about the pending release of Zeos 7.2: Since there are no more pending changes that block a release, I will create a release next weekend. I created a simple release notes document that can be downloaded from Sourceforge with the following URL:
https://sourceforge.net/projects/zeosli ... f/download

The source code for these release notes can be found in the "documentation/release notes" subdirectory of Zeos. Any comments are welcome.

Best regards,

Jan
