Hello developer team,
1.) As a general reminder I want to say that* there is a developer
meeting every Tuesday on 22:00 Berlin/Germany time in our internal dev
channel (#limesurvey-dev) on IRC irc.freenode.org.* It would be
important that if you are a LimeSurvey developer to attend in this
metting. If you don't have the password for the channel please get in
touch with me. Since most people are able to attend the meeting on
Tuesday and feel comfortable with the current time slot there is no
reason to move this meeting to a new day/time.
2.) 1.8 is a great version. Unfortunately there are still many issues in
the bugtracker open. Please also remember that there is a feature
freeze. No new features should be implemented unless we talked about it.
Originally the release was planned for March 2nd - which is barely
doable by now. I suggest to delay the release date by a week but I hope
you guys can help fix the remaining things. It is a shame that the full
release cannot be done because we lack the final fixes - 1.8 has so many
new things people are hoping for - improved accessibility,
RemoteControl, the re-worked conditions editor are really kick-ass
features. So let's get the baby out of the door!
Thank you for your compassion and help!
If you have comment, wishes, complaints, etc. please let me know!
Best regards from Hamburg/Germany
