h2. Broken Release Candidate
21 2 Steffen Ritter
22 1 Steffen Ritter
Anyhow it came to light on saturday that we have an error in our
23 1 Steffen Ritter
automated release process which resulted in wrongly packaged Release
24 1 Steffen Ritter
Candidate files for 4.7. In fact the Release Candidate packages
25 1 Steffen Ritter
contained the sources of the current Master branch which is version 6.0.
26 1 Steffen Ritter
As by Thursday already many things changed in the master branch you most
27 1 Steffen Ritter
likely broke your system. We removed the download links and added
28 1 Steffen Ritter
according warnings to the news.
29 1 Steffen Ritter
30 1 Steffen Ritter
We fixed the scripts and will release a second Release Candidate
31 1 Steffen Ritter
tomorrow. Afterwards we are permantly going to remove the problematic
32 1 Steffen Ritter
packages from sourceforge and the tag on Git. We hope not having raised
33 1 Steffen Ritter
to many problems on your side.
