Current stable tag slip status
This is the current status for slipping the stable tag:
make seg-fault - fixed
Opera/Firefox stalls - fixed
TCP 'sent too much' panic - final testing of patch, will be fixed soon.
Installer update - final testing, will be committed tonight
ppbus init panic - still diagnosing
(reported by Joroen)
IPV4 connection problems - still diagnosing
(reported by Peter Avalos)
[I'm not including general hardware compatibility and interrupt routing
issues as that is a long-term problem].
The last two items require more diagnosis. I need better date range info
from Jeroen and a kernel core from Peter. I expect Jeroen's ppbus
issue can be fixed fairly quickly. Peter's issue is harder (I don't think
anyone else has been able to reproduce it yet). I need a core from Peter
to try to figure out what is going on. I am beginning to suspect it is
a resource blowout somewhere.
I am not going to delay slipping the stable tag past wednesday. If there
are still undiagnosed bugs by wednesday we will have to fix-and-slip as
After the stable tag is slipped we will begin release engineering for
a release prior to USENIX (which I will be at, BTW). I am going to
call this release 1.5 oweing to the fact that the big ticket journaling
item isn't done. The release date will be in early April.
Then, tentatively, since so much progress is being made, the 2.0 release
will likely occur in September.
