Notes on the MyFaces Core 2.3.0-beta Release

Timeline

Issues

Testing

Here's how you can help us test the distribution.

Download a nightly build of the distribution assemblies:

Configure a <repository> for Maven 2:

        <repository>
           <id>apache.snapshots</id>
           <name>Apache Snapshot Repository</name>
           <url>http://people.apache.org/repo/m2-snapshot-repository</url>
        </repository>

And declare a dependency on the 2.3.0-beta snapshots:

        <dependency>
            <groupId>org.apache.myfaces.core</groupId>
            <artifactId>myfaces-api</artifactId>
            <version>2.3.0-beta-SNAPSHOT</version>
        </dependency>
        <dependency>
            <groupId>org.apache.myfaces.core</groupId>
            <artifactId>myfaces-impl</artifactId>
            <version>2.3.0-beta-SNAPSHOT</version>
        </dependency>

Note: Maven 2.3.0-beta will not download a new version if one is already present in your local repository. You will need to delete $M2_REPO/org/apache/myfaces/core to force Maven to download the new version. (Usually, $M2_REPO is <your home directory>/.m2/repository .)

Test your application, then, let us know the results (good or bad!) on dev -at- myfaces.apache.org. (You must be subscribed to post. See: http://myfaces.apache.org/mail-lists.html.)

7. VOTE

Hi,

I was running the needed tasks to get the 2.3.0-beta release of Apache
MyFaces core out.


Please note that this vote concerns all of the following parts:
 1. Maven artifact group "org.apache.myfaces.core" v2.3.0-beta  [1]

The artifacts were deployed on nexus repo [1] for binary and source packages.

The release notes could be found at [4].

Also the clirr test does not show binary incompatibilities with myfaces-api.

Please take a look at the "2.3.0-beta" artifacts and vote!

Please note: This vote is "majority approval" with a minimum of three
+1 votes (see [3]).

------------------------------------------------
[ ] +1 for community members who have reviewed the bits
[ ] +0
[ ] -1 for fatal flaws that should cause these bits not to be released,
 and why..............
------------------------------------------------

Thanks,
Leonardo Uribe
