Anyhow it came to light on saturday that we have an error in our
20 1 Steffen Ritter
automated release process which resulted in wrongly packaged Release
21 1 Steffen Ritter
Candidate files for 4.7. In fact the Release Candidate packages
22 1 Steffen Ritter
contained the sources of the current Master branch which is version 6.0.
23 1 Steffen Ritter
As by Thursday already many things changed in the master branch you most
24 1 Steffen Ritter
likely broke your system. We removed the download links and added
25 1 Steffen Ritter
according warnings to the news.
26 1 Steffen Ritter
27 1 Steffen Ritter
We fixed the scripts and will release a second Release Candidate
28 1 Steffen Ritter
tomorrow. Afterwards we are permantly going to remove the problematic
29 1 Steffen Ritter
packages from sourceforge and the tag on Git. We hope not having raised
30 1 Steffen Ritter
to many problems on your side.
31 1 Steffen Ritter
32 1 Steffen Ritter
Today Oliver and I additionally discussed Release Parties, the timeframe
33 1 Steffen Ritter
for the Release tomorrow and next week as well as probably outstanding
34 1 Steffen Ritter
things. Besides the problem, that we are still waiting for the Design
35 1 Steffen Ritter
Team do Design Release Party Banners as well as Stage Items and Graphics
36 1 Steffen Ritter
for our Release Notes we are in a very good state and will Release TYPO3
37 1 Steffen Ritter
