I think that a 3-month (or maybe 4-month) period is a good one. 2 months is not adequate.
I hope though to see 0.4.0 coming out before summer.

I'm sure people aren't that stupid.
It uses the word 'earliest' which translates to 'it will not be released before this date, but may be released after'
We have however, been hitting most of the release dates of recent.

Then that would be a lie.

There are a myriad of reasons as to why we aim for a 2 month release cycle. Search the forums and the mailing lists, I'm not about go through this again.

How far away is implementation of logins? ReactOS asks for an administrator password when it is installed, but it doesn't seem to use it.

How is FsRtl which is being worked on by Schweitzer coming along?

There is one obvious Firefox bug left, but it seems to be working much better. The bug can be seen when the advertisements on the left
side of the main Reactos site page are scrolled up and down.

Why has the number of virtual desktops been reduced from four down to two?

What will be the difference between 0.3.7 and 0.3.8 other than the firefox fixes?

Is the memory manager getting attention?

Perhaps a changes list could be maintained with trunk so people can see as new releases come what exactly is changing.

Will there for sure be a 0.3.9 or not?

Hehe I like the first question! (a...second change is to support Acrobat Reader 5, 5.05, 5.1 and 6. I opened successfully pdf files). Also Foxit Reader etc...
Well this was a funny answer because as we all know, this ain't about only which apps run but what is fixed inside mostly :)

As for the second question, please visit the wiki. We have a changelog for 0.3.8 release there.

Nothing has been done with it since i joined in.

FsRtl is feeling fine. Still plenty left to do.

Bug -> Bugzilla
Why has the number of virtual desktops been reduced from four down to two?
IF you CONSIDER "the number of virtual desktops reduced" == Bug THEN report it to bugzilla.
What will be the difference between 0.3.7 and 0.3.8 other than the firefox fixes?
All the changes are in changelog.
Is the memory manager getting attention?
Not at the moment.
Perhaps a changes list could be maintained with trunk so people can see as new releases come what exactly is changing.
SVN Changelog works fine.
Will there for sure be a 0.3.9 or not?
No one knows for sure.

Yes I know it works for a long time, but I don't like it. I prefer the other 2 instead.

Foxit is still much faster. Sumatra is bit slow to me.

So Everyone can see, 0.3.8 comes at january. Its a proof that all this senseless discussions about complaining when it's released were just wasting time.
Great Work!

[ros-dev] 0.3.8 Test Season has started :-)

show details 1:57 AM (10 hours ago)

Hello everybody (and especially the testers),

After nobody complained about branching 0.3.8 from trunk now, I took the
initiative today and prepared the branch with our usual customizations and
hacks.

It's now again the time for application testing. Therefore I uploaded Boot
CD and Live CD of the current branch to http://reactos.colinfinck.de/
Please test them, especially with the applications in Downloader, and write
your results to http://www.reactos.org/wiki/index.php/Tests_for_0.3.8

I especially write this now, because we want the release to be ready some
days before FOSDEM.
Andrew wants to start burning the CDs for FOSDEM soon, so it would be great
if we could get the entire release done till *next Monday*.

Best regards,

Colin
So be cool, 0.3.8 is coming.
