    What is the timeline for 2.0.1?

    Clint Popetz Apprentice

      This bug:

      http://jira.jboss.org/jira/browse/JBSEAM-2357

      is preventing me from dropping our code, so I'm curious what the timeline is for a seam release that contains its fix, or if I should patch 2.0.0GA locally with this change:

      http://fisheye.jboss.com/changelog/JBoss/jboss-seam?cs=MAIN:nrichards:20071215034152

      Thanks,
      -Clint

      P.S. I'd love to join a mailing list where someone from jboss could send out "Oh, we just discovered seam 2.0.0 isn't thread safe." I wouldn't have wasted the past three days isolating the above bug.

          Given that that most of the Seam team will be on holiday for most of the rest of the month, I'm fairly certain we won't get a GA until early January. Right now there aren't enough big fixes to warrant a CR2, so I'd recommend either using a CVS build or backporting the fix to your 2.0.0.GA.

          There is a seam dev google group, but most of the issue discussion takes place on the respective JIRA issues. You can join the seam-issues list to monitor JIRA changes.

            Thanks for the information on the timeline. I'm running with the latest nightly snapshot, which allows me to continue load testing, though I'm reluctant to deploy to production with it.

            With regard to the mailing list, I'm not so much looking for development discussions. What I'm interested in is an announcements list for critical issues (security, crashing bugs, bugs that effect the entire framework, etc.) I think that discovering that seam isn't thread safe is a pretty big deal, and the only way I found out was by stumbling upon the JIRA issue for the above-mentioned bug. If I had already deployed seam to production, I'd need to know that bug exists as soon as possible, so that I could roll back. I can filter through seam-issues, but I might miss it, or not recognize the ramifications of a bug as well as someone versed in the code.

            If I buy Jboss support, does something like that exist? If the above-mentioned bug had been found in a released (not GA) version of seam, would someone at jboss have made a more concerted effort to get the word out, e.g. a sticky forum post?

              We are also waiting on the release of JBoss AS 5.0.0.BETA3 before releasing the next GA of Seam. I hope we can do a release early in the new year. In the meantime, I think CVS is pretty stable atm with no big changes planned before the next release.

              There is no such facility for the community, I will check whether there is for customers.

                How is JBoss AS 5.0.0.BETA3 related to the next GA release of Seam? Will it take advantage of some new features in 5.0?

                I would like to switch to JBoss 5.0. Have you hear of an expected release date for JBAS 5.0.GA?

                  Embedded JBoss is based on JBoss AS 5, we want the next release of Seam to include Embedded JBoss BETA3, which will be released shortly after the AS 5.0.0.BETA3 release. Hence that requirement.

                  No, sorry. I'm not sure about this, you would have to ask on a JBoss AS message board. It's not ready for running Seam apps in production yet though.

                    Thanks for the reply.

                    I won't be switching until it is recommend for Seam apps or at least approved.
