The proofs-of-concept have come together. The plugins are green in CI. A release is imminent.
This month has been a lot of tying up loose ends as we prepare for the iRODS User Group Meeting in Durham, NC (June 5-7, 2018).
We're going to announce the agenda within the next week and begin preparing our own presentations and demos. There is a lot to share and to show.
We are so very close now. If we get the logging done well, we are aiming for this to be the last 4.1.x release.
The last of the plugins are coming online now - we'll release as soon as possible. Outstanding issues will be moved to a 4.2.4 milestone.
Not as much focus here at this time. We port all bugfixes back and all features forward. So the work above is going into the master branch as well.
Fourth Metalnx Working Group
Hosted on April 16. The domains have been transfered to the iRODS Consortium, website updates soon. The branches are merged, and a v2.0.0 release will occur before the iRODS User Group Meeting in June.
