Results/retrospective for the March 2017 sprint.
The March 2017 sprint ended on Tuesday, March 28, a few days ahead of schedule, producing the Lucee 5.1.3 release (188.8.131.52)! For those keeping score, so far in 2017 we’re at 3 completed sprints, 3 Lucee releases, and 3 retrospectives. We have a lot more work to do, to be sure, but the development team’s productivity is gaining momentum each month. There’s a lot to cover, so let’s get started.
First, we’re still in a push to get as much of the community on 5.x as possible. As a reminder, if there’s a problem/ticket that’s blocking you from upgrading to Lucee 5, please let us know ASAP here in the forum, and we’ll try to put top priority on those tickets (which is something we’ve been doing since February, actually).
Here are the summary details for the March sprint:
- Original sprint plan: 11 tickets
- Tickets added after start of sprint: 10
- Tickets not completed: 4 (128 and 1131 were duplicates; 1135 and 1150 could not be reproduced)
- Tickets completed: 17
- Sprint start: March 9
- Sprint end: March 28
The result of the March sprint is the latest stable production release of Lucee: 5.1.3 (184.108.40.206), which can be downloaded from the Lucee downloads page.
Tickets included in this release are here:
By the way, Adam Cameron and a few others from the community have rightly pointed out that we’re not yet publishing proper release notes, but rather just linking to the list of tickets in each completed sprint. We do plan to begin creating formal release notes later this year. Consider it added to the PM’s to-do list!
Next, we’re just getting started on the April 2017 sprint, which will produce Lucee 5.1.4. We’ll publish that sprint plan later this week.
Finally, we’re also considering releasing Lucee 5.2 after either the April or May sprints. This will include enhanced administrator features. More on this as the April sprint unfolds.
Thanks for listening, and thanks as always for your interest in Lucee. Looking forward to getting everyone running on Lucee 5!
