Public Dev Meeting 5th August


There has been significant progress towards releasing 0.5 since last week's meeting. All the remaining open issues for the Multi-User project were closed, the first Release Candidate was cut, and ~50 bugs were raised against it. Those bugs have all been triaged and assigned to either be closed before this release or punted to a later release. Already ~40 bugs have been fixed, we're back down to just a handful of bugs, and RC2 is expected to be cut shortly*.

From here, we'll run through testing again with RC2, find and fix any further bugs and hopefully deliver a final Release Candidate on Friday.

The official public release of Ghost 0.5 is scheduled to happen on Monday 11th August.


Between now and the release, we're hoping for lots more testing, particularly around the upgrade process. Test-only PRs are very, very welcome, as there's quite a lot of low coverage throughout the app. Additionally, we'd love suggestions on how to improve the upgrade and install documentation to make Monday's release as smooth as possible.

* Update: Release Candidate 2 has been published

The full logs of the meeting are available from Slimer, our IRC bot (who is also on GitHub by the way!).

What is this?

We hold a public development meeting pretty much every Tuesday at 5:30pm London time in the #ghost channel on freenode. In this meeting we discuss progress, important issues, and what is and isn't on the Roadmap. It's a chance for everyone to get involved and have their say about where Ghost goes next.

Hope to see you at next week's meeting: Tuesday 12th August, 5:30pm London time.
