..wow -- just 15mins ago it was 38, 5min ago it was 28, now it's 22. at this rate we should be there in... umm ... 30min :)

seriously though, do you guys expect the bug count to go down much more before RC1?
how about the upgrade script from beta5 to RC1, any word on whether there will be one?

I think if there are 5/10 bugs (or less :p) and the documentation is ready and the new website is ready they will go RC!

But KUTW

But DHN how could we repport bugs if we can't find them? They are hidden now becausse they are afraid for the bug spray :mrgreen:

Maybe you're interested in some statistics (not guaranteed to be correct).

Code: Select all

Phase   Started Reports   Fixes
Beta1    Jun 17     625     288  (56 days)
Beta2    Aug 12     561     306  (92 days)
Beta3    Nov 12     167      86  (15 days)
Beta4    Nov 27     681     352  (62 days)
Beta5    Jan 28     480     199  (39 days so far)
-------------------------------------------------
TOTAL              2514    1231  (264 days)
Open reports         22
Consider that beta3 stage was very short.
Any thought?

I think that B3 was very short because we had found most of the bugs then. The vast majority of the bugs since then have been to do with the converters, which were introduced with B4 and B5, where as UTF-8, which I believe was the big change with B3, was surprisingly smooth.

On another note. Do any of you listen to Fountain of Apple's phpBBWeekly podcast*? He started it a couple of months back, but, I was very interested in a point he made last week.

There is going to be server maintenance this weekend. The last time they took the server down for maintenance was just before the Beta1 release, to get it ready, prepare it for the influx. He pointed out that this one could be to prep for RC1.

Now, all this bug quashing? The odds are stacking up. :D

**what? he says it every time, so, I felt I should
