Re: About ReactOS 0.4

To make things clear: Pi_User5 asks about something like PC ROS Rigs, but an additional site, dedicated to specific pre-release testing, similar to how app tests are done before each release.
My issue with that is that there may not be enough content to justify such a page being created in each pre-release cycle. But as always - if anybody feels like creating a proof of concept in the wiki, go for it; it may actually take off.

That's what I wanted. I will create a proof of concept page later on today.

Well, it's claimed that ReactOS 0.4 will be released in Summer'15.

But comparing our status with our goals, it seems that we'll wait for 2016: Lautus (and probably other themes) has issues, shell has still minor issues, sound/USB/networking still has issues (devices not working, complaining or throwing BSoD) and their documentation is not ready, and kernel (MM/CC) is mostly incomplete, memory management is very bad...

What can I say? Let's wait for good things, in 16 months, ReactOS got much better!

And supposing ReactOS ("core") 0.4 is released almost at the same time as ReactOS Community Edition, you would need to wait for CORE-9593 to be ready :P

However, the 0.4 should not have already all objectives ....
This is the goal when you close the branch 0.4

Errr... I don't understand a single word of your post ReactFan.
ReactOS is still in alpha stage, meaning it is not feature-complete and is recommended only for evaluation and testing purposes.

If I understand correctly, ReactFan notices that it has been a long time without any new blog entry nor any meeting report and for him, it appears to be of bad sign. By the way EmuandCo please see http://www.reactos.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=14178 on a related subject.

There were two blog posts within last two weeks, that's quite good (well yes, they could have been set at least a few days/weeks apart, but I liked to see the news).

As for any following release (I neither want nor expect any specific date), is there any specific list of stuff/JIRA issues that have to be finished for release?

As much as possible, as you can see if you check the jira diagrams. Your meeting minutes will come soon..
