Main developers have finished making Japanese edition of the official website. So our development was restarted. Many important reports were reported in the Legacy bug tracker. We should respond all of these item. 2.1.6 is also a minor upgrade version like other 2.1.x.
But developers were added. So we don't think that it's difficult to release. We have many tasks --- English edition of the official website, core development, took development and the 2.2.0 branch. This is a time that we should restart all of these tasks.
Because I visited to OpenSourceConference 2008 Shimane, I had been unable to work for 2 weeks. But I came back to my town, so I will restart programming. Now, I am checking CVS norification mails.
I've restarted to develop 2.1.6. There are some big patches (phpmailer & smarty) and big items in the tracker. We have to fix those until next Sunday. By that, we can release a first RC version 23, Sep that is holiday in Japan.
If you have the commit-right, check items of the tracker that you can fix. If you don't have the commit-right, write a patch and submit it to the patch tracker.
Join to us! Release 2.1.6 and go to 2.2.x and a new core/base!
phpmailer や smarty などの
23 日に最初の RC が出せるように
Sorry, I could not complete 2.1.6 tasks today! Because I don't have any free time this week day, it's perhaps impossible to release 2.1.6 for a week.
I'll post a new release day in the near future.
