OpenMAMA-6.2.2-rc2 Now Available

Frank Quinn <fquinn@...>
 

Hi Folks,

 

We were planning on releasing today but a pull request landed yesterday containing some bugfixes for the recently added plugin code which I have deemed as necessary for this release, so I have now cut OpenMAMA 6.2.2-rc2 which can be found here:

 

https://github.com/OpenMAMA/OpenMAMA/releases/tag/OpenMAMA-6.2.2-rc2

 

Considering this is bugfix only, the release candidate window will be one week, making the target release date (all being well) 28th June.

 

I encourage all application and bridge developers to rigorously test this new release with their software especially with respect to the market data subscription life cycle.

 

If there are any further incoming changes please advise me asap to see if the above dates need to be revised.

 

Cheers,

Frank

Hi Folks,

 

Hope testing is going well!

 

We’ve just submitted a change to correct a few unit test compiler warnings and memory leaks recently introduced but nothing which impacts core code so there’s no current reason to extend the RC window.

 

Just a reminder that we’re going into the final week of testing here so if anyone has spotted anything unusual please speak up now if you want a fix to make it into this release!

 

Cheers,

Frank

Thank you all in advance for your help in testing - if you spot any issues, please follow our guidelines for raising an issue, or even better, follow our guidelines for raising a patch.

 

Since the release is significant, the testing period will be 3 weeks from today making the target release date 20th June and everyone is invited to try it out - binary releases are available at the link above.

 

If critical issues are found and not resolved before this date, we will continue to go through weekly release candidates until have a stable release ready.
